Kitchen window

As we contemplate a new kitchen, I realize I am most excited about being able to see the outside clearly.  While the kitchen conversations are around counter tops and cabinets and universal resale-ability,  I dream of being able to see the birds clearly in winter.  

In the new kitchen
We will be able to see through the window
Over the sink.
We will not have to guess at birds,
Dim blurred images
Of themselves.
Now the color red
means a probable cardinal.
The ducks across the way
Look possibly duck-like.
The lady in red
Is barely a lady.
She has no recognizable face.
In the new kitchen
There will be clear glass
Distinct birds.
We will be able to see
Our neighbors.
