My Secret Garden
Red Yew Berries
Feasting my eyes
on the neighbor's trees
turning leaves luminous
waiting for its turn in the sun
Bird tracks in the snow.
They have been quite busy!
These ravens are very vigilant birds!
I had to leave the window open for what seemed like hours
of hiding behind the curtains,
camera at the ready,
hunting for an opportunity
to shoot a photo before they'd take flight again.
A couple of times they pretended to be busy
searching for food under the snow,
when in truth they were only teasing me,
keeping me in the corner of the eye,
ready to take off before I could engage the shutter.
"Evermore!" I insisted.
