Ready To Absorb (by Joe DiMino)

As a pool
with its glassy eye
to the sky
I am ready to absorb…
the shadow
of a passing hawk
scattering flocks of leaves
and what escapes
in the speckled residue…
I click-
capture the moment;
search through
the filmy branches
for yesterday's nests
and tomorrow's dead.
