    monday dawn-
    stars line my path
    by the lake
    the rain's steady babbling

    Coney winter
    a gull's shadow pecks at a chestnut

    Very nice, Johnette.

    morning prayers
    the cardinal singing
    from his branch

    Absolutely lovely, Johnette.
    And I liked Bill's response as well.
    I say Amen to both of them.
