Tiny Tenacity







Tiny Tenacity

 

Amazing how they thrive

in this weather, while I

would surely die

sans four walls and furnace.

 



 

Tiny scraps –

more feathers than substance –

yet they persist,

persevere despite snow,

wind notwithstanding.



Stepping outside,

I cringe at the cold

while I refresh food & water,

then bustle back inside

to watch from my window

marveling, once again,

at their amazing tenacity.
