ONE CROW HOPPING
(1/17/2016)


this bird
has direction

this bird
has purpose

intelligence
sparkles
in those
obsidian eyes
as they assess
the situation

the head
tilts thoughtfully
in consideration

what more
can be asked
of life?

existing
with such
intent

I try
not to dawdle
in distracted
awe

lest
I be mistaken
for a being
less animate
