January 16.19



Excuse me, Eminence.

I really must ask:

do you think you’re hiding

because of the mask?


with that wing?


is not your thing!

You’re subtle

as an advertisement,

the scarlet feather

of self-aggrandizement.



With apologies to Nathaniel Hawthorne.

  1. Ah, the beautiful cardinal making an appearance as I start my day. It doesn’t get any better than that. 🙂 When I visit Brookgreen Gardens, the Cardinals probably send out a signal – the stalker is here. 🙂

    • Oh, yes, I can see that: you with your camera, and the cardinals keeping their beady little eyes on you! I hope you get some good shots! It’s the dickens trying to get them to hold still!

  2. If only it had thought to hide in the amaryllis!
