Coyote rests on the fence post –
clucking and bobbing,
he does not hide his pleasure
from the April sunshine
we sit on the side porch –
laughing at crow antics
over a well-worn cribbage board,
my hair becoming tangled
in the ivy on the wall

A lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon – enjoying a break from Saturday’s rain. Coyote chose to join us and was so obviously happy basking in the sunshine, it was almost comical. Our new-ish neighbor stumbled upon us and no doubt is wondering if we’ve both gone senile, talking to a crow. Ah well – keep them guessing, I say!
Have a beautiful week, my friends!
That’s so cool Sarah! 🙂
My crows are quite upset because I now also have a resident owl..between the group…day and night have unique sounds…enjoyed your poem.
Just so you know, I’ve had many the enjoyable chat with a crow!
what a beautiful day – and such good company too – love the last lines with your hair in the ivy – have a wonderful week too, my friend – K
Love this. Coyote and crows. Quite the bedfellows.
