Serving Berries

On April 29th, this pedometer geek posted a blog on the poem, “Serving Berries,” which was published in the first 44839: Poems from a Zip Code anthology published by Drinian Press, LLC. The poem was about the cedar waxwings who visit our serviceberry tree. In the space of a few days, the waxwings clear the tree of the berries.

Ever since the scouts stopped by a few weeks, we have been waiting for the flock. Yesterday, they arrived.

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Lovely. I walked my yard this morning to see the Mulberries ripening. Too far from the window for camera shots to see who might be eating them 😀

    • I hope you find some wonderful birds enjoying your mulberries, JP. As for us, we have found that we are enjoying more birds this year. I don’t know if it because of the stay-at-home orders, less noise, or leaving the bird feeders up longer. No matter why, we have had more variety and kinds of birds showing up. And we are taking photos.
      Happy Summer Solstice to you and your family!
