The Cardinal: Singing Fear into Light

The cardinal is one of my favorite birds to watch. I often see them in pairs, the male bold and showy, the female more modestly camouflaged with the Earth. They are birds who bring the Earth’s blood into song and light.






Singing Fear into Light

Look at me

I am red aflame
in feathers

I speak the Song
of Self

Sing light through
a collar of night

I am fear

This blood of Earth
moves through you
