Dee's Valentine

No morning is
entirely wasted
if you get to see
a verdin that small
gray-yellow bird
related to the chickadee
searching the leaves
of shrubs and trees
for bugs or if you get
to look up and catch
the occasional cherubim
speeding across the sky
tearing off their
garments as they go
or if you get to remember
for a few moments
something long forgotten
only you would know
