A moment shared

by Jem Croucher

 

Through the window I spied
with coffee in hand
a small feathered friend
flutter by and then land

Perched on the side of
the larch wood bean frame
to my garden in search
of a morsel he came

Ignored the bird table
and the seed laid out there
but favoured some crumbs
from the toast I could share

He stayed for a moment
and a little to drink
from the birdbath there
then flew off with a wink
