Starlings


Flocking and flying
like dry leaves tossed by the wind
brown starlings take wing

High

Barranca Mesa, Los Alamos, NM

High on the mesa
A pool of green life below
Dive into beauty.

Adobe

The making of bricks is hard
coded into our DNA
That universal recipe
--straw, dirt, water--
(and we, too, are dust)
from ancient times still
flows from our hands into
walls,
sun-baked,
that house our expulsion from paradise.

Not.

Death is not death
merely a stepping-through
an entrance
into another world

Let go.

No, death is life
At last
I will hear and be heard
I will see and be seen
I will think and be thought of
as the true me
God intended.

No longer
will our bodies keep us
from true living
from true being
(How can what is broken walk with God?)

Step through.
