July – week 3

summer moon…

overflowing

my cupped hands

~

late summer —

a narrow pathway

through the corn

~

this hour

of struts and frets…

stirring deep

in the body of darkness

strains of a sweeter song

~

corn fields…

searching for the song’s

yellowhammer    *

~

after I’m gone…

layer upon layer

of winged words

that settled

while the dust gathered

~

* follow this link to see (and hear!) a yellowhammer:
