Little Mr. Intention

Little Mr. Intention

How could the little titmouse know,
holding seeds between his toes,
that further out along the limb,
he makes the leaves twitch on their stems?

His tufted head pounds up and down;
the careful listener hears the sound,
of sunflower seed yielding up its heart
to a pecking, determined dart.

The poplar leaves, out at the tip,
tremble gold beneath each dip
of beady eyes and feathered crest,
before they drift to autumn's rest.

Carmen Ohio - Song of Ohio

Central Ohio in the fall.

Proud to be an American.

Proud to own an American Jeep.

Wind-deposited whimsy.

Feathered Whimsy.

Follow me.

                                                   America.  Exceptional.
                       The people and the land they've made free and prosperous.
