Robin red-breast

Robin red-breast

A robin
           with fiery red breast
chilling out on a branch
           in the chill wind
insignificance
           is its significance

I watch as the branch
           slowly rises and falls
the bird virtually
           weightless

but a moment
           nevertheless
in my life
           I who still have 
the breath to appreciate
           and to admire it
