Tufted Titmouse

the cicadas' roar
drowns the Tufted Titmouse cry -
a hot May morning

On the Pinellas Trail


a pair of Killdeer
by the school bus parking lot
stands guard on the trail

the strong resonance
within the bamboo thicket
Downy Woodpeckers

a lone Brown Thrasher
looking over his shoulder
from the chain-link fence

among small white stones
left on the graves of the Jews
several Fish Crows
