Weather Vanes

by Gwen Monohan

Weather vanes,
designed in rooster form
and found above the barn,
show wind direction
in case we aren’t aware
a cold front’s approaching.
And serious storms too.

But then we see true birds.
Juncos in clusters,
making snow predictions
by feeding longer.
Their tiny, feather vanes
later lodged in snow
like black darts, targeted.
