Rain bird

Rain bird –

carry words

like bags

you keep

under your eyes

weight is light-

air feathering    

itself in rain,

pressed

to mist 

upon your face,

knowledge 

is colorless 

if not your own,

a chiasmus

longer than scope,

the swallow of the horizon

is the dip of the universe

behind your eye

oh petrichor cosmos

stumble, choke, 

carry forth

mind from earth.

sound scent the rain,

upon each leaf cascade

unwrap infinite, this gift

like the promise bearing breath 

from the ellipsis of dream 

as I still the song of the rain bird 

to let it live
