A few new: Grace

Last week we had snow. I’ve been thinking about something I saw since then.


skinny legs and feet
no bigger
than twigs stand
up a body half-handful
of fluffed-up feathers

light as air and a
small stout heart
that can beat
one thousand times a minute
its engine. Sparrow

the one whose
crusty snow hops leave
not a mark
almost it’s
weightless – but make no mistake:
Never think fragile.

  1. A shadorma chain! Wonderful! And the birds all puffed up standing on toothpick legs – a comical look but one that has stood the test of time and evolution!
