The woodpecker

flies from tree to tree.

Her bright red crown

seeking the best drum

for her pecking rhythm.

To respond and call

with Tera.

Her red head

pounds a rhythm,

seeking Tera’s response

a mother’s heartbeat.

Call and response.

We too beat a rhythm

with our lives.

Are we hearing

Tera’s response?
