in our cloud covered,

littered alley

near the dumpster–

one brilliant cardinal



in rummaging the racks

of children clothing,

one small nightgown,

and a wish

  1. A cardinal in a grubby alley is such a bright and vivid thing, which makes that small nightgown and “reignited” wish burn just as brightly.

  2. Your poem underlines the significance of the truism, ‘Ideas exist in things.’ As writers we must develop our skills of observation. You have practiced that very skill, here, in these words. Power on with poetry.
