Summer evening--

Summer evening
bright white light filters through
a profusion of narrow green leaves
outside my window
flickering shadows on my face as
I dry my hair
a sudden swoop
a red cardinal
darts and lands on a
suddenly swaying branch
crimson feathers
translucent orange beak
stylish black trimming
he falls to the deck like a stone
and curves out under the railing
