Poetry: Cardinals

With but his red to woo her,

in a courtship of minutes,

he captured her jackhammer heart.

For three years, with each

never losing sight of the other,

they’ve wrapped countless presents

of tree and sky with the scissor-

curled ribbons of their flight,

managing, with nothing

but the cap-pistol firepower

of their BB-sized brains,

two lifetimes of devotion.

-Larry D Thomas, Right Hand Pointing
