Mixed Emotions

 

He slips in, this handsome hunter,

perching silently, waiting patiently.

Worried, I watch him

contemplate the tender tidbits

feeding in my garden, unaware, inattentive.

A while later, I notice two crows goading,

dogging him into the distance.

This time, the hawk leaves hungry.

    1. Thanks for dropping in on this one, Viv! I love them all, so you can understand my dilemma. ;-)
