A Sparrow Takes Flight

20190603_164850

As the wind moves through the trees a robin is released,

and a sparrow takes flight

while beautiful songs travel

into the blue sky.

And a dragonfly hovers,

watching me.

    

Note: This came to me on my front porch today.

Opening Up the Sky

20170916_123027

When I was a boy, my bow was only made of plastic, but I could fire those arrows way up, so far, so far

into the blue that you could not see them anymore, lost

in the clouds until they descended suddenly

deep into the Earth as if an offering

received. Nobody knew

but I was a Crow warrior back then

simply opening up

the sky.

More beginnings.
