crow%20in%20flight%20by%20Paneros

South
she walks
with sunset
in her hair and
nothing more to
prove or say
while words
like flagstones
shimmer gilt-edged
on the path
ahead.

East
enticed
no more by
hero myths, he
tunes his ear to
harmonies
pulsing
silver through
the fragile webs
of dew-soaked
morning.

North
west of
Abbot’s Sound
a crow flies straight
to higher ground
his chalk line
drawn, he
plumbs two hearts
their depths to a
single point
must come.
