Yesterday AFternoon

Yesterday Afternoon
(Housatonic River)

overhead a hawk
catches air in folds
of his wings

opened to wiles
of the wind
circling dipping diving
soaring into blue infinity

the force gathers
momentum within itself
feeding into the
current underneath

pulling him into
down and away
far from the place
that contained him

joining the stream
running full and free
over rock and rapids
without cause to
correct its way
