NaPoWriMo 04/05/2017: Downy Woodpecker

2017 NaPoWriMo1

This month, I am collaborating with nonfiction author and photographer, Christy Peterson.  You are invited to write and submit a poem based on the photo in the comments.

downy woodpecker

morning walk at the refuge
the downy woodpecker drums,
a red beret tree flitter

searching for beetles and ants
hidden deep inside tree bark
foraging in late winter

listening and observing
I’m returning to my roots
outside on a nature trail
