Wild Society/River/Reading The Lake - 3 Poems - Poem by Ben Gieske

WILD SOCIETY

kingfisher
flash of blue
hi ho silvering across the waters

little bird singing
its heart
the world will never know

the cat curious
and seeking
which life now?

On a spring twig
the jay cocks his head
questioning too

pigs in the woods
eating truffles
wild society



............RIVER

rivering rivering rivering

.............rapids
rapidingra pidingrapiding

..........waterfalls
