Holly Bush

Outside the bay window
This gift to my late wife
Given to her by her sister
Years ago plopped in a hole
No bigger than a shovel scoop
Man, has that thing grown
Cardinals sometimes peck the branches 
Pulling berries from icy weaves
And my late wife’s wonderment
Gentles me down corridors of dreams
