bossy pants (haibun)

Such a beautiful family, she noticed in the tree by the river.  The male and female along with the younger chick…beautiful red cardinals.  They stayed throughout the year because of the birdfeeder.  She loved sitting outside in the summer and hear them sing to her.  Of course this was a multicultural tree and others birds claimed a section including woodpeckers who had their own temperament.

 Darn woodpecker
drive those cardinals away
bossy pants!
