February's Fear

byMaria2394©

While tending feeders I noticed her
and held my breath as she hung
from naked limbs of dogwood and oak.

She claimed she was content
but I heard the wind whisper
that in fact she was lying

And was filled with fear of falling
from the wet-gray winter sky.
Then I thought I saw her shiver

As afternoon raindrops huddled; the lot
of them afraid to fall and puddle
not knowing how good it is to be

Welcomed by the waiting ground.


~~~~~




thanks to WickedEve for the inspiration
