It’s 8:30 on Wednesday morning
The early light drifting into the house
Grey with the low clouds
A juvenile cardinal is startled to see me
Sitting quietly in the garden corner
He dismisses me with a bird shrug
and hops from one jewel-toned blossom
to the next
as they sparkle in the semi-gloom
undeterred by the threatening rain
