Yellow birds

Yellow birds in flight like a dragon a kite

coloring the heavens with feathers
white lingering memory

Falling down and touching upon earth
that quivers

A thunderous longing that broke
on the stone

The rugged cliff of gray that rose
so mightily

Winds that envelop the rocks freeze
over into little stars

Looking down the hill rolling
towards the oceans

Blueberry and heather cloak the ground
like a blanket of many colors
warming the land

A song of exquisite quietude rise
slowly through the bones
and fill the air with total silence

A supreme surrender fills the sublime
