Watching the world from my window

Charmed Chaos

I watch the world from my window and despite
All the news today ~ more people dying
The whole world crying
Signs of spring are everywhere

Every morning the thrashers come pecking
At the block of peanut suet to feed
Their fledglings in tow
With tiny gaping mouths they wait
In earnest for their treat
Ruffling their feathers as they eat

The radish seeds are coming up
It’s only been a short week
The rains have been a blessing
For everything in the garden
Is blossoming and brilliant green

In early dawn hours, a dove crashed into the window
Trying to escape the talons of a Cooper’s hawk
Leaving wispy feathers stuck on paned glass
But there was no escape, no where to go

I understand the bird’s plight
