The Sky Sparkles

January 28th, 2011

The flight of gulls

Of lake not sea

Flash wings

In setting sun

Shifting colors

On placid surface.

The winged elm stares on

Wishing for sky

While wait-listed to standing

Want for spacious air

Weighted without soaring shape

Streamlines stranded

For waving in the wind.

Left to see the sun

From forested frames

The winged elm stays,

Satisfied in the waiting

Towering high

Surfaced near the water

Becoming the sky

In moon light.
