Greetings! I’m a writer, editor, and teacher, and I enjoy connecting with readers and other writers. From 2017 to 2021, I served as Alabama's Poet Laureate. I call this blog and website "A Map of the World" because I think that, as writers, we each map the world through our own lives and imaginations. Welcome to my particular map! To get in touch, you can email me at forjenhorne@gmail.com or find me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/for.jen.horne where I post a Mid-Week Poetry Break every Wednesday.

A little poem that arrived whole

Two Redbirds

Country cardinal
stands at woods' edge
eating his moth,
crispy green wings first--
the color of new leaves.

City cardinal
pecks at fallen french fries
in a parking lot,
skips away for a car,
then back, to keep his feast.
