seeds

amazed to discover
hard seeds once buried away
now softened by the rain,
are bursting forth
with mysterious strength, bringing life

birds

gray, blue and green feathers pass
pigeons play a game of chase

black and silver plastic flash
mocking bird squawks at passing tourists

golden yellow and buttery brown biscuit crumbs
sparrow hops hopefully along
