SWEETNESS

SWEETNESS

Stain glass window sun
distilled or filtered silvered sun,
gilt sun, rooster sun,
sun over roof over mountain

Waking with the sun
or before it

How day starts to collect itself
from rest to the easy sleepy pace of dawn
to oblivious strolling promenades

What it’s like to be a bird
essential creature rising with the daily tide
ebbing into sleep with proper circadian rhythm
birds with heads tucked under wings
birds of a feather

Birds,
holy birds

Lofting, swooping, nestling,
maneuvering for position on branches

Sweet

Innocent even when
quarrelsome

~ Lady
