Driving Home, Dayenu*

The red-tailed hawk in the parking lot,
tracking me as I found my car.

The black bulk of the vulture
by the dry side of the highway.

The robin picking rock salt
from the deepest driveway cracks.

(A heart will swell until it bumps a rib
when the eyes report such wonders.)

If it had been these three,
it would have been enough.

This is absolutely beautiful, and that picture warms my heart.

Thank you so much. I'm glad to return the favor--that kid dancing to Flo Rida was more than I could bear.

Other folks: Haven't seen it? Follow LiLu's name to her blog. Thank me later.

That kid is AMAZING, isn't he? I've watched it like 90 times ;-)
