Fragment of Faith

A common cardinal calls, with rushed chirrups.
And again. And again. Car doors crunching,
babes cry. “The pancake breakfast needs syrup!”
“It’s not breakfast, remember? We’re brunching
today!” People scurry to help, bring cups
of whatever’s lacking. Friends laugh, choirs sing.
Bodies bend, voices rumble roughly together.
A bird calls back, slowly, and sheds a red feather.

  1. nice to have cardinals join you for brunch – they flock and scurry around like the kids do

  2. LOL! I hadn’t thought of that. I was trying to embed layers of meaning in a piece that would sound simple, but have more to it. That would definitely be another layer!
