It's Obvious, The Secret

The flower-tree weeps

Its heavy petals,

Yet fruit is coming. 

 

And the rosary of pearls:

Irritating reasons 

Make it beautiful.

 

Do you hear the Finches

Careful with their words?

 

Can you sense the leaden keel

Farthest from the shore?

 

                 ❦❦❦

 

You are the gasp of Eagle’s wings;

The moment Falcon tears the fur—

The swelling wish of weighted grain;

The swishing scythe’s hallowed call.
