First crack climb. Had to hang quite a bit, but I'll take it as a first time. :)

Cosumnes River Gorge, Dinkum, 5.9. Elated and exhausted.

Nuthatch
by Kirsten Dierking
What if a sleek, grey-feathered nuthatch
flew from a tree and offered to perch
on your left shoulder, accompany you

on all your journeys? Nowhere fancy,
just the brief everyday walks, from garage
to house, from house to mailbox, from
the store to your car in the parking lot.

The slight pressure of small claws
clasping your skin, a flutter of wings
every so often at the edge of vision.

And what if he never asked you to be
anything? Wouldn't that be so much
nicer than being alone? So much easier
than trying to think of something to say?
