To Coo Or Not To Coo

Don’t let that soft coo fool you;

that mourning dove 

can take a stand.

She flapped a wing

at an advancing squirrel

before she flew off,

shortly to return

and peacefully share 

the bird seed laden rail

 with other friends with wings.




It’s not only we

who can tie ourselves in knots;

nature does this too.


Night Time Shenanigans

Ever wonder what the trees

are up to at night?

The day ended with green buds,

opened with bursts of white.



So many wonders

missed as we thrash around in

worry’s undertow.
