plucked from shadow stream
by a mind with no fingers
ego self removed

framedout

as empty as a frame
contains only the blue sky
where birds entertain

splitted


Killdeer - juvenile



splitted

when water washed
across protruding rock
the resultant ripple
split like a circle
duality reared
its two-sided head

smoked


Eastern Kingbird



smoked

rock secured by lines
breathes smoke from its dormant mind
never rises once

skyed


Great Blue Heron



skyed

exhaled through a rent
in the clouds opened
like a mouth breathes
dragon fire
across the sky

sawed


Green Darner



sawed

universal eyes never see
with the same brain twice
manifest where empty
is left alone to play

Gray Catbird



hearted

love wouldn't be the same
if there weren't two involved
together is one
