Isn’t it a beautiful world
when we can be thrilled by color
quietly carried in the feathers
of those who visit our yards
in the not so early morning…


There within a stone’s throw
and on constant alert
they protect each other with alertness
thankful for the offering of food
from the human gatherer
yet wary of his threat to their survival


Satisfied of no imminent danger
while still attuned with all faculties
they are united in their energy

Teaching us all that sustainability
is dependent on trusting each other
to share in the abundance
while on guard from predators
