morning poem, may 13, 2016


The first grey of morning
presses against the face of the lake
still as glass

It is too early for wind
too early for birdsong

In the sky above
an eagle closes its wings
and lights in a high, bare branch
its shoulders point up
black against the grey sky

all is silence
all awaits
