POETRY / Alyce Guynn : Cardinal in Pyracantha

Cardinal, detail from quilt / Wolven CyberArts

Cardinal in Pyracantha

A wind chime plays softly
the melody of memory
soaked in winter sun

Bright the contrast
between then and now

like the cardinal
in my pyracantha bush

The breeze behind the music
is cold against
the warmth of winter sun

    This is “Nyce”!
    I love the reds of the cardinals and the pyrocanthia, fiery reminders at this time of year that the Sun is even now returning!

  2. Well I was going to do the ‘nyce’ thing too; but it’s been done already.

    HAPPY 2009 – EST. Diane
