Dawn Watcher

By John I. Blair

While dawn breaks
The finches, redbirds, blue jays,
Chickadees, doves, nuthatches

Flock to the feeders
Finding provender
Whose origin they never ask.

After all, as they hop
From opening to opening,
What possible link

Could they make
With the face in the window
That watches intently,

Blinks drowsily at their task,
And smiles?

2022, John I. Blair, 7/19/2022
