Cool Days


Cool mist puffs

From stream to sea.

Icy droplets

Yearn to be free.

Oregon junco

Grasps a twig,

Craving bare ground,

He can dig.

Finding seeds and

Fat insects,

More like what

A bird expects.


Tiny sparrow

Sits alone,

So much snow 

He can’t condone.

Keeping warm 

and saving strength,

Sunny days

Will come at length.

  12. Absolutely beautiful photos of the landscape and the birdies. Did you just “wing” it when you threw the cute poem together? Ha ha ha. Very sweet post. Warmer weather is just around the bend. (I hope)

  16. A beautiful poem, Anneli, and I love your photos. We’d had scores of juncos at our feeders, and a few thrushes. I love birds as I know you do. Spring is coming.
