Blue Sky Cry

Health, leisure, good fortune, and very modest means.

Blueberries, and other transitory things.

No desire to possess or own.

Catkins and birch-bits.

Sunflowers. Bees. Cucumbers.

The spider in my hair, taken back outside.

Aware — yes, aware — there are troubles in the world.

Hunger. Suffering. Violence. Greed. Pain.

Wildfire. Drought. Climate change.

The poses we assume. The lies we tell. The games we play.

Aware — yes, aware — there is joy in the world, and boundless love.

The blue sky cry of two young hawks testing their wings.

August 17, 2022. Afternoon.
