'Mercy' - Poem by Kelly Seale

This is an excerpt from 'Walk on Water, ' by Lorian Hemingway, my dearest of Author friends.

'... The day Travlin's letter came a crow flew hard against my front window, believing it air, and in that moment of contact when his wing snapped, a clean break, and the glass bowed, unseen in this ordinary light, but visabile, I suspect, at a point in space and time infinitely more forgiving, there broke free in that fractured second the tone and very timbre of mercy.'

- Lorian Hemingway, 'Walk on Water.'
