Honeysuckle Heat


chickadees and cardinals

scrabble and hop

away from wind’s sharp sting

breaking open silence

on short winter days

with chirps chitters scolds

and the brushed crackle

of twigs and dead weeds

pause as you walk

but don’t disturb

the colony on the hillside

where year round birds

seek protection

in a tangle of branches

evergreen vines

and honeysuckle heat
