Glimpses from my porch in summer

by Lorraine Munro ( at Port Blandford, Newfoundland)

White throated sparrow
cuts through the boreal silence
chanting for another

Wee rabbit appears
sniffs the alder shoots
unaware of me

Rustling shadows blend
where the dark wooded path begins
sunbeams dance through birches

Butterfly twins flit
through rugged stonewalled garden
in harmony

Red squirrel flies high
across tangled forest floor
a friend in persuit
