Jewels From The Different Seasons

As the natural world turns from one phase to another, the careful eye finds moments of energy and color. Sighting Geese

This morning frantic air, nicked with a jitter of wings, has summoned me beneath its dark, where darker shapes shift against wrenching blue, hovering between night and dawn. Swept up in this motion, I stand under the awe of these wild things, their intentions a continent away. Veering across my horizon, they seem to signal some great victory, though for whom or over what I cannot imagine, unless these travelers, leaving with me some flicker of their journey to those latitudes of light, leave something of themselves cleft in this moment that I might pull down and wrap around my shoulders while I wait for their return.
