Mark Nenadov- Two Poems

Winter in Essex

Small white flakes wander by my window,
the neighbour presses their nose into theirs.
A proud cardinal perches in a barren tree,
which stretches out into the empty sky.

This house isn't insulated so well,
but that's another project for tomorrow.
So many important things in life can't happen today;
and the cardinal ignores it all, searching for seeds.

Ojibway Park Ovillejo

A totem pole guards a parking lot
Tranquil spot.
The wondrous world of wildlife converges
Surges with lupine.
A wily fox snake sneaks
Where night eyes peek.
The Eastern Towhee twists its beak
A turtle submerges before long
A Northern Cardinal tweets its song
Tranquil spot surges with lupine, where night eyes peek.
(Previously appeared in Northern Cardinal Review)
