silly thing

silhouette of woman sitting on window watching birds flying

A bird hits the window (again),

knocks her head, falls to the ground, stunned,

uncertain which way is up—

a petty thing

for anyone passing, save for the one on the other side

of the glass that saw it coming and stood

helpless to help this, her fellow

creature of half-seen


this poem appears in my 10th book of poetry – Roses in Winter
