Morning Slips into the Valley

Morning slips into the valley,

undisturbed, the first rays

slide across the far hill,

highlighting the lichen

wrapped trees.

The jays raucous alarm?

Oh, an accipitor glides

across the field.

As this threat moves on,

attention slowly settles.

The chickadees and juncos

get back to their breakfast

at the feeder.
