Familiar…

the [big-eyed] cat
crouches by the open door
waiting…
as I stand near my altar
swaying while praying out loud.

CELESTIAL CALL

The Cardinal perched, a respite from flight —
Deep red blood – the bird to sing — heart’s delight.
Talented Linguist is the Mockingbird;
Melodic mimic, it’s celestial — WORD.
Flapping [feathers] a honk and a thud —
Two Canada Geese walking in the mud.
Live Wire revitalized, the Mockingbird,
Feathers ruffled by the wind… how absurd.
Long neck undulating – up, down, the nod,
Part of a Canada goose strange ballade.
