daily bread

mid morn—
kitchen window opens its eyes—
charming our nest into song frenzy—
front door reveals a friend
trying to mimic our chirp—
“Morning, pretty birds!”
our hearts beat past our wings
as wild seed fills our aerial bowl
and garnishes the feet of our tree—
“Enjoy, pretty birds!”
once again so good be life—
‘tis breakfast in Vale of Spring

time

                                           no beginning
                                           but a fountain of birth—
                                           no end
                                           but a final bed for mortality—
                                           a sacred vault
                                           for every memory
                                           every spirit—
                                           eternal hope
                                           of rebirth
