A New Month

Meticulously & peacefully, woodpecker is hammering

Alas, there’s smog on the air

Meaning, a hot day of Eastern wind we’re expecting

Fresh coffee, for a moment, diminishes my care


Woodpecker <3

This time, they found another tree

A bit further from here

The hammer is strong & without fear

A familiar sound, starting in January



I heard the familiar hammer

Yesterday 😮 January

What plan has the Programmer,

Starting so early?



A few trees further away

Than other years

The trusted hammering-away

Betrays a presence one hears
