Juncos in the bird bath
Can be four at once
Propellor wings hurling water
Feathers flinging, fountain forming
Droplets’ curved skin reflecting
Peaked January sunshine
Shining bright platinum purity.

The camera sees what eyes miss
Wet explosions of aqueous fireworks
Bright brief sparkling slashes
Then stillness.

Satisfied juncos jump off
The quiet surface of the water
Refuses to smile.


My wife and I were treated to our first 2020 rainbow as we headed north on Hwy 99 this morning.  Then this evening the dog and I wandered around under the glowing dusk colors of the best sunset so far this year:IMG_0824 (2)IMG_0822IMG_0823
