poem of the day 01.08.13

red cardinal in a bush

there is a red tailed hawk
nestled in a tree
in the central park ramble

but you asked me not to write about it

claiming that you wanted the moment
for yourself

and because i’m a generous person
and because i love you more than life itself
and because a good poem is hard to come by

i acquiesce

and choose to write about
this single red cardinal nesting in a nearby bush
