Winter Sparrows

April 9, 2011
The sky is dark,
Silence lingers.
Winter’s coldness clings to sleeping trees.

Sparrows perch on leaf-less branches
Like plums.
Some hop aimlessly on the city’s cold pavement
Looking for food.

Do the sparrows sing less
Brightly in winter’s cold?
Or are my windows closed?
