her throat

dried out like

her eyes

winter air moving

clipped wings

futile attempts

as the cold

had taken her already


weighing her heart

against a snowflake

the final judgement was

delivered by the frozen soil


frigid on the ground

the steady cooing

of her companions

made for

an avian vigil
