Birds in Mind

i
Sacred kingfisher—
into the world onto the branch
courtesy the King.

ii
Wren and the art
of bird-making—dear Lord, such
blue in the bush!

iii
Statuesque heron—
unmoved as humans debate
the Sculptor question.

iv
Goodness, that ibis
signals the presence of birds
in the mind of God!

Becoming

A girl from my girl
and her love … A new human
being has become …
So becoming—this person
who soon will call me “Grandpa!”
