One Sunrise a Day

Until summer
a pink-and-white poppy
neatly framed
unwanted lessons
about focus and cropping

Tea for one
on a day of snow and worry -
the bald eagle
that once flew over this farm,
will it ever return?

Quick strokes
and a carpenter's whistle
to window the cabin -
in the contract one sunrise a day
