Finch at My Window Feeder

Finch at my window feeder –
Drab dun underneath,
Flame red above –

I’d only be convinced
To deem you ordinary
If rainbows be ordinary light.

Faith in miracles
Isn’t needed
To name wonder here,

Birdseed transmuted
Into seamless flight
Through liquid air,

Into feathers
Claiming fragments
From the gleaming sun.
