This Morning

The dew-kissed grass
Christmas card glitter on individual blades
A bird bathes itself in the neighbor's birdbath,
another suns itself on a nearby rock
The tomato plants are budding, ever hopeful to produce
Their juicy red gifts
Lots of chirping in the trees
A bunny sits in my yard and bites off the tall dandelion stalks at ground level
Nibbling on the tender food like a pretzel stick in its mouth
A robin hits the mother lode, a fat squirming worm in its beak
The buffet is open
