Sixteenth Saturday, from Saratoga Springs, one week late

Bright yellow flashes

Light up bare branches, brown grass.

Goldfinches are back.

Crimson cardinal

Announces this whole yard’s his.

Sparrows ignore him.

Bluejay at feeder

Makes a mess, knocks seeds to ground.

Squirrels are his friends.
