Mindful Writing Day One: Imprints

Imprints

A snowy tree branch bends
and bounces with a cardinal’s weight
feathers puffed like red balloon
caught in the leafless dogwood.
He waits and watches.

Just beneath
sunken prints in white snow.
Among the rabbit and dog
are mine on a path leading
to somewhere warm.
