More like May

one small stone in a riverbed of stones; day7

More like May ~ Michael Douglas Jones

This warm January morning, more like May; a mockingbird, with mate, in the winterberry tree, plucks a berry ripe red, and flies to the top of the redbud. Turning back, he wonders; in this struggling economy, will there be enough berries to last until the June bugs return. Turkey vulture, high above, knows there is always plenty.



  1. i know i shouldn't laugh, but this is brilliant. :)

  2. this is wonderful, it was like May here today as well. i wish i had seen/heard a mockingbird.
