Spring Dance

a pair of cardinals

in my garden – in spring dance

they zip here, fly there

pecking at freshly tilled soil

a cold and windy spring day

Splash of Color

Odd bunch..
sparrows, robins
cardinal, small parrot.
It feels like the group from last year.
Is it?
They visit the feeder at dawn
taking turns, no conflicts
Splash of color
in spring

So this is my first cinquain. It’s a A butterfly cinquain. It’s a nine-line syllabic form with the pattern two, four, six, eight, two, eight, six, four, two.
