Bird Voyeurs

Birds and herds
of cows
and mule deer
grazing freely

Downey woodpecker
upside down
Antelope squirrel
right side up

Golden eagle rests treetop
hiding his wingspan
House finches
at home singing

Black-billed Magpie
cries yak yak yak
Junco sporting
his black hood

Coopers hawk flies low
Red tail screaming loudly
blue sky ceiling and
river flowing west to east

Mallards know their way
Remote rangelands
offer silence to the soul
Heartbeats ringing.
