Morning Sounds

New---
a robin announces
the day, enthroned
on a branch against
the sky, 
his song lifting
my sorrows
without warning.
The flickers rat-a-tat-tat
their greetings--
Morse code
messaging the news,
"leave tomorrow,
live today,"
and I, like the birds
relish the sounds
and the sun
and settle in.
