Window Closed

Night Window. 24″X18″ Lex Leonard.

She flew into the window closed
my attention drawn
to the thud then flutter
dove escaping squirrel

A change of course but
no loss in flight
protectress of her nest
neither pleasure nor pain 
to be acknowledge

Simply survival

In spring there is a frenzy
to brith, bring new life

There is no time for pleasure or pain
