Carol Moore's Mountain Moments for February 4, 2008

Mountain Moments

waiting for the muse
taking deep breaths
I notice a black gray branch
laying on the red shingled roof
bits of dry brown leaves
snippets of twigs
hanging in the gutter
it has lived on this roof
for months
not moving
through winds, rains, snow
holding onto the slanted roof
squirrels have pranced around it
birds perching on it
blown from the tulip poplar
finding a settling place
