Snow Frosted Cupcakes

will take a bite of
these frosted wyoming hills
like a cupcake

peacocking house finch
perched so the ladies can see
his bright red scarf

My Valentine

my first valentine
pink hearts in mailbox
recently touched by him

You know spring is coming when you see twigs in bird beaks. I saw my first this morning on my drive to work.

twig in pigeon beak
plastic great horned owl watches
overpass nest mess

Yesterday's Backyard Drama

cat spying on me
window blinds sway with her tail
hidden curious eyes

horny thrasher song
breaks the winter silence
hoping for spring love

snowflakes falling
like popcorn from the kettle
in God's kitchen

worried birds huddle
around the feeder
for comfort food

my cat screams!
wobbles in the house
white fur in her claws
