Bird's Eye View


life is the patchwork quilt of soil and tree, 

squared and plaited, broken only by 

meanderings of river or stream.  cities  of 

steel or mud, brick or wood pepper landscapes

of movement and place.  the horizon is forever 

ahead and elusive till broken by vessels of man, 

or wings of fowl:  we all fly, swallow sky, 

entwined with one revealing moment of eternity.
