osprey mother – July 20

7.20.2015

osprey mother slips away

wing clipping the wire

 

the talons beak fine

strong corpus

no longer matter

 

in the world of instinct

to be wounded

is to die.

 

she sits on the low

timber, wing askew,

nowhere to go

 

there is no hurry

only a reasoned

wait

 

for release.
