Eye-opening Spring Morning Inkling

Hoping to take in more 
Than enough to get you 
Through yet another day, 
You’re out in the garden next

To the flower beds when 
You stop dead in your tracks
(As they say) dumb-founded 
By the insistent scratching

Of sparrows sparring over
Last year’s seeds overlooked 
In the few scrubby weeds 
Remaining a few steps away. 


  1. Wonderful "little" poem! A number of rhymes, semi-hidden, sing! Catching this moment and portraying these--and our--lives, we who also search in the past for what can keep us going. Thanks for this one! It's a beauty.
