the tiny bird —
denying witness
to its flight.
Creating allusion
to an unseen breath.

Field Sparrow

in the cool green glade
as afternoon sun fades
she flitters and flies
in a sea of millet and foxtail
as the elm slowly dies
singing her song
of exultation

for it to alight
here
not in midair

to
take its own
relief
