Wasteful finches at the feeder
scatter seed over the front porch,
costing me more money than I
have to spend for the mere pleasure
of simple watching. 
                                   Yet I want
them here, I need to see that some
act of foolish kindness can still
bring joy in this world of hatred,
greed, and our endless bloody wars.

One thought on “Finches

  1. maybe they’re spreading the food on your porch as a gift…a thank you for your kindness in feeding them…or maybe because they enjoy watching you and are trying to entice you out where they can be reminded that there are humans who are kind and generous in such a harsh and sometimes unforgiving world.
