The Red Bow

Sipping coffee in the early morning darkness. The neighbor in the patio home behind mine has her kitchen light on, but all I can see is a portion of her empty table. Last night when I stepped the dog out to potty, there were stacks of brightly colored presents on that table. Perhaps my neighbor was about to ask her grandchildren to carry them to the tree or maybe her guests had temporarily placed the gifts there while they finished unloading their cars.

Now the gray light of this December morning is clearing the path to my feeders. I haven't had any birds for days.
