“A Fragile Thing”
lone black crow lands on swaying tree top
high above rushing waters of the creek
crow’s voice hollers out
sharp staccato jabs, high-pitched notes
mingled with swift moving water
build nests on flat rocks
beside a torrent of white-water
near Rhododendron bushes
super stars, each of them
magnificent blooming wall of flowers
before dawn this morning
Life happens slowly
like growth of lavender-pink
hundreds of them
everything in sync
a fragile thing.
This poem won 2nd place for Poetry, Magnets & Ladders Spring/Summer, 2019.
