Wings Flying Sails

Yuba has wings

stone constellations

ripples that move

toward language


Starlings flying

rock to rock

keep their eyes

on the river


Against dawn


small clouds behind fir


A King Heron

resounds like bagpipes

then fills the air

with feathery sails



a morning bubble

lifted by a breezy hand


I lift a coffee

to my lips

a trout leaps

for a moth


from my sixth book-length manuscript
