Consider a brown sparrow,

Feathers settled and smooth, sure-footed in grasp, high on a wire

Overlooking a field of plenty

Beak slightly tilted

Alert and poised

Surveying her kingdom

 

Consider a Cardinal… say a Bluebird…or a Baltimore Oriole

Curling claws over that wire nearby

Overlooking a field of plenty

Beak slightly tilted

Alert and poised

Surveying her kingdom

 

Plumage plain, plumage bright

In what ways affect our sight?

Above, below, from left to right

It doesn’t matter

But it might
