accident

a drizzling day
birds knocked
from the feeder
a second sort of rain:
a small shower
of sunflower seeds
as black and shining
as the birds' dewdrop eyes.

Now gleaming with dew
twine up leaves
beside the feeder
grow sunflowers
yellow faces watching the birds
an accident perhaps
but no less then a miracle.
