flight

 

I want to photograph
a flock of tiny birds
swooping simultaneously
from bare-branch tree to
swaying high wire

 

I want to capture the surprise
this sudden rise     into air

 

(an unexpected testimony of flight)

 

but here
now

your face

 

(and all the things that moved
when you flew)
