River of Stones

Cerulean Skies

Dead crow in the road

its broken body disturbed

by a thundering truck

A wing, still complete and whole


and for a brief moment

it appears

as if

the bird will rise up

and soar

once more

into the heavens.

With every passing vehicle

the wing rises

in silent homage

to its former home

in cerulean skies.
