The Bird Tree is in a bubble
I inhabit during fleeting
Perennials surround the tree
and flank the observation porch
a few feet away.
Squirrels, Chipmunks, and
an occasional Black Bear
are also attracted by the feeders.
Porch visitors comment on the activity
around my porch, and might be scolded,
as they sit, by a Blue Jay looking for peanuts.
This is healing energy which, perhaps,
I could bottle and distribute –
an elixir in these dismal times.
