Tending Patterns, Tending Pattern - The Cardinal

This morning in the corner of my city yard, a cardinal brilliant and red moved from the feeder to the ground nearby taking seed to feed a smaller bird, a young one or its partner, I could not tell.

Then it flew to the deck and drank from the dish of water filled for moments such as this.

I watched the cardinal's tending pattern reminded of acts of the masculine to feed, care and protect - unnoticed, unacknowledged.

Tending patterns.

Tending pattern.

By the cardinal, I am fed.

What feeds you?
