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
