Neighbors #1



Indifferent cardinals

Flashing crimson appear

Not realizing the

Fuss they cause


Jays come with business

On their minds

Owning branches

Screeching orders


Hospitable chickadees

Enjoy their reputation

Seemingly good-natured

Ready for their close-up


Yellow finches commute

Invisible highways

Tirelessly darting

Their details blurred


Monotone woodpeckers

Reveal red dashes

Gossip too loudly

With mouths full


Day and neighbors depart

As hectic bats arrive

To clear the air

Then linger ’til dawn
