A tuft of feathers, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

Its left wing broken,
the songbird plummets earthward—
one last brilliant note.

Christmas Tree

Tabletop Christmas tree in an Arizona church library

tiny Christmas tree
for the great celebration
of life, love and light
~~ ~~ ~~
brilliant crimson bows
festooning the green branches—
merrily on high
~~ ~~ ~~
A child’s fervent prayer—
Let there be something for me
underneath the tree.
~~ ~~ ~~
how thoughtful the gift
placed under the little tree
by a mother’s hands
