napowrimo – niizhtana shi swi (twenty three)

robins hop back and forth in the budding grass

dew springs around their yellow legs landing

on sleek feathers rolling off and falling to the ground

 

worms wiggle

stretching from one end to the other reaching

across the sidewalk towards the grass on the other side

it is a race

a robin cocks it’s head to one side

hopping

all it sees is breakfast on the go

it is a sacrifice for the other skinny worms to keep stretching

wiggling

struggling across that bumpy concrete

scratching their slimy underbellies

all the home
