heron, poised to strike or fly,
is symmetry. quick eyes pierce

reflected sky and fix the world beneath.

we won’t act until it moves,
can’t divine from stillness.


cloud insinuates, ground discloses less.
between, no flower but in its promise
and crow who tells it slant:

winging from willow to pine, saying,
follow me for i am the way.

saying, pay attention, i’ll lend you my sun.
