Morning entertainment in the backyard
Breakfast Time

Kathleen McNamara

Flashes of feathery color
Accent the rose tinted dawn
There is a scarlet headed woodpecker
Drilling into the ridged bark of an old Gum Tree
Searching for his morning meal

A pale plump blue bird
Dines at the feeder
Robins, hopping on the grass
Doing their worm hunt dance

A chickadee and a tit mouse
Jostle for the best perch
On my neighbor's bird feeder
A teal and his mate
Peck at the seeds
That fall to the ground

Me?
I relax at my window seat
Savoring my coffee
My breakfast prepartions paused
While I enjoy the show
