the why . . .

a redbird
hunting crumbs in snow—
the child’s first glimpse 
leaving unanswered
the why of bright wings

breaking ice
from a frozen rut
I skim
the silver shards
into the windswept sky

  1. Stunning winter tanka with killer last lines. What perfect imagery: the brightness of redbird in the snow.
