the finch feeder swings
and sways in the chilling wind
outside my window


cold winter rain falls
will be turning into snow
will the finches feed?


a flash of bright red
a cardinal swoops down for
his meal of cracked corn


grackles and squirrels
fight over the bread crumbs while
tiny wrens steal them


the finches are here
feeding on thistle seed as
mourning doves ground feed


winter birds banquet
watching them from my window
I pass quiet hours
