An Unfair Exchange

Hi again from Vermont.

Wow! Got another full day of sunshine today after lots (and lots) of rain.While observing some birds at our feeder above the waterfall, I was moved to write these lines. (If you’re groaning now, not to worry, the poem’s really short):

Patient waters bind the spirit
while paring the rock.

Warm breezes nourish the soul
with the scent of oncoming
autumn splendor.

Grey birds offer their wisdom,
beauty and song in trade
for a few seeds.

A most unfair exchange.
