an unseen presence: I waiting: the wren

the grey wren is under supervision
from a superb blue

they have alighted four times this morning
on the balcony
and the grey has flown to the top
of a glass door
only to slide

tap
tap
tap
tap
flutter

to the ground

again
and again

then
away for a few moments before return
to try once more

the blue
is supportively close at hand
seeming to urge the grey
to greater effort
to success
to triumph

then away

they seem to feel the influence
of an unseen presence

something handsome
intensely attractive
gorgeous and irresistable
as near as the other side of the glass
where I stand watching
and waiting
