Unexpected visitor: a bird
Drops in to her field of vision
Alighting just beyond the impenetrable window
Pecking daintily at snowcovered grass tips
Piercing frozen tundra of bleak carbon copied days
Harbinger of hope on a grey February morning.
Bright eyes, diminutive rust-hued breast
Pull enraptured gaze
Capture solemn attention.
Stilled before lift-off,
Frozen moment memorized.
Bird flits, gracefully through razor wire fence
Beauty, flying free.
