Major Event

The Return of The Cow Bird

alerted Me to My #1 Sense

as Eye hesitated to sweep

the puddle of this morning’s rain

off my Front Yard Canvas

Eye contemplated the water spot

and heard, with My Very Own Ears,

that favourite sound of liquid drop

and up I looked

And There He Was!!

On the mirror

of My Still New Chrysler 200 LX

MORNING PREEN

The Hawk Window Seat 8:25am

My Cow Bird is back

perched on My Car Window

in front of His Mirror

bowing to Himself

as He fluffs up His Plumage

tail out-spread

while letting loose

His delightedly watery chirp

MY GIFT

The Hawk Deck 10:01am

As A Child

the call of The Wild Blue Jay

signified to Me

I had My Whole Life Ahead —

when I hear Him now

I am informed:

“Joanna, You have

Your Whole Life

Bestowed”

THE ROOSTER

The Hawk Deck 8:40am

In the early to mid morning

the domestic call of The Rooster

cackles through The Scrub Spruce

from one road over

& delights My Humour mixed

with the wild clucking

of Our Local Bird Life

I so dearly love

HARK!!

The East Side of The Hawk House 10:56am

EYE have heard The Call

of The Brown-headed Cow Bird

perched upon M(EYE) car mirror

He is the very essence

of falling droplets

and His Liquid Melody

plop plop

excuses His Actions!!

AFTER TWELVE HOURS OF SLEEP

The Hawk Deck 9:00am

The Silver off The Water

crashes into My Eyes

loosely glinting on Its Southern Edge

I hear The Morning Birds

out on My Deck

with the screen open behind Me

hearing the water kettle on

for Our Second Cup

MORNING PONDER

The Hawk Deck 7:54am

What is it

in the crashing of waves

that makes Peace come to Mind?

It it the accompaniment

of morning birds

or is it sitting in My Chair

out in the morning air

of My Life’s Domain?

NEWS FLASH

The Hawk Computer 6:04 pm

My Husband, Dr William Hunter Blair, now believes

that My World Trade Center Roof Top Painting from 1984

titled Self Organizing Galaxy

may have given someone the idea

for 9/11

NOTICE TO MY READERS 222

EYE have not been writing much —

EYE have been making recordings into M(EYE) cell phone

in-which M(EYE) Husband does not seem very interested.

MORNING CALL

The Hawk Queen Bed 8:11am

The Jay boasts The Song

of My Growing Up

in Valley Cottage, New York

where I played in woods

behind My House

& zoomed up a hill

from The Bus

after school
