Days to remember
This morning I took a cup of tea out on the back step and stood there for a moment, love in the sunshine, watching a couple of woodpeckers in my silver maple tree, one with his red cap and the other, with her streaks of white, a pair of (would-be) mates, perhaps... Downys or Hairys, I didn't think to discern, as I watched them flit from branch to branch and then away, but it did occur to me that in the time I lived here, I've not seen a pair of them together. Or maybe I have, and just didn't recall... sometimes it's hard to say what I remember or not anymore, but they were beautiful to see, on the morning of this day, or any other day. And that I will not forget.
