Butterfly Cinquain 6

17 August, 2016
jackdaw
swerves in mid-air
grasps hold of bare branch and
wobbles, sways to and fro, trying
to get
his balance without his black tail.
Watches me with pale eye,
wanting pastry –
hungry

trembling light glitters on branches; morning sunlight after a night of rain

Dried Blood

24 October, 2013
Blood
drying, red-
brown, curled edges
clinging to bone bare
branches.
