My Kindergarten ornithologists are obsessed with our resident male cardinal, as am I. He really is gorgeous and we miss hearing his song through our now closed classroom windows. With the recent arrival of snow, his stunning red self catches our attention throughout the day whether he’s resting on one of the bird feeder perches or in the nearby thicket, planning his next safe foray to the feeder.
As I head off to 10 days of resting, reading, (w)riting, and rejoicing, I share this small gift with the Poetry Friday family — a snap of our feathered friend on a recent visit and a quick descriptive haiku. Season’s Greetings to all!
Buffy at Buffy’s Blog is our host today for Poetry Friday. Won’t you join us there?
