Close Encounters

everyday
for the past two weeks

as I walk by the tree-lined marshy area
where a frog choir often practices
where grasses, crown vetch, yarrow, and 
other wildflowers flourish

a redwing blackbird swoops down
and circles above me several times
three to four feet above my upturned face

chip....chip....chip it says
everyday

then as I move on it finds a tree limb
or flies to the top of a pole across the road

its territory safe once again

Go Back
