The Hawk Kitchen 12:28pm

My Kitchen is My

Viewing Station

through glass doors

& arched window

over the sink

I can see hawks

schools of tiny birds

like an aquarium

against an ever-changing

cloud-scape —

to the right

I have the delight

of The Kitchen Outpost

— a smaller window

facing My Enormous


of salty shore line

ever-changing in the weather

of the sea
