Percussive: A Woodpecker’s View

woodpecker on a fence 2 april 23

The woodpecker bends

his beautiful red head

percussively pecking at the wood

happy with nothing to dread


The wind is blowing

other birds join in the tune

a joyful sound

comforting at noon


It is lunch time

at the feeder buffet

birds and squirrels

enjoying the day


Aerial battles ensue

as blue birds see a house

searching for a place to nest

each trying to joust


The woodpecker is content

pecking the day away

many little bugs for food

his wings begin to sway


Returning to his nest

surveying the world around

content with his life

there is peace abound
