This day, this moment,
Squirrel maneuvering around Tin Man bird feeder,
Strong coffee brings it own alert
to each cell of my grateful body.
Now crow sings his significant clarion call as
Sun nurtures each living being,
each Ponderosa pie needle,
each feather of every black-and-white magpie
searching out his breakfast.
What a surprising luscious moment.
How radiantly wonder-full
if I but notice.
