Symbiosis

Amidst our leavings
Poor discarded offerings
Of mundanity

Nature’s small beauties
Follow her wilful children
Cleaning city streets

Passing unnoticed
A moment when eye meets eye
Shares understanding

    Pretty little chaffinch! (When I looked it up, I’m surprised I had guessed correctly. I have no idea how I knew it. Maybe Beatrix Potter? :-D) There does seem to be an understanding sometimes that passes between, ‘when eye meets eye.’
