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

half-hidden

small clouds behind fir

 

A King Heron

resounds like bagpipes

then fills the air

with feathery sails

 

Sun

a morning bubble

lifted by a breezy hand

 

I lift a coffee

to my lips

a trout leaps

for a moth
