January Joy 18

Searching for joy,
what can I see?
A bright breasted robin
in the bare cherry tree
flit down to the feeder,
grab just one seed,
then into the hedge
at remarkable speed.

Feed the Birds

Something keeps knocking
the bird feeders down
and spilling the seed
all over the ground.
It might be a squirrel
so just in case
I’ve re-hung the fat-balls
in a different place!

One of the feeders was actually broken, so I bought a new and better quality one today, filled it with seed, went to hang it up but dropped it – and guess what; it’s broken!
