Speaking of Obligations....(10) too high...

birds drawn by Leonardo da Vinci
There are birds circling above, high, so high--
they are only the faintest palimpsest of flight.
I stand on this earth and look, look for them
'til my eyes burn with empty sky—

and still there is light.

(10th in a series on the Long Obligatory Prayer.)
