… rantings of a depressive procrastinator. Did I mention, I write? …

Birds’ Bath

Two inches of water
stand.  Shiny puddle
in a blackened stone bowl.

Wee brown down thing,
wind-puffed; yellow legs
lengthened in liquid glass.

You blow like a leaf
into the dish, dip
and look up. Dip.
Look up. Hop. Fly.

    …mighty kind words, Ron. Come back often. Better still, join the Writing Adventure Group.
