Birds


Procession through the desert
Cranes fly over India
Pigeons scramble for their crumbs
China harbors the omen of swallows
Eves of temples
Bell towers

The old world fills with winter
Talons like time craving fire
Ice and Zen
Foxes and Japanese cranes
Stellar eagles
Ancient lands and their birds

All these malicious computers
Who is hacking whom?
This murky world and their banks
Codes, spies and quantum physics
Your love cannot be digital
How I miss the sweet birds

I trust the birds

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
