is a man who knows
that the world is not
given by his fathers, but
borrowed from his children.

This male pyrrhuloxia looks a lot like a female Northern Cardinal and its song is nearly identical to the cardinal.

The trail was quiet
The breeze was calm.

What is that little bird
With all that energy?

Wings constantly flicking
Chattering out his songs

The hiker pulls out
His nature guide.

Was this nervous fliting
Bird just passing through?

Looks like a kinglet,
Possible a ruby-crowned

Spending the winter
In Sabino Canyon.

We dance round a ring and suppose,
But the secret sits in the middle, and knows.
