“Swan Song”

Oil on Wood Panel 47″x 30″

This bird in me

won’t sit quiet

unhappy to make nests

It turns on a finger tip

lifting with the wind


to see over hill

uncomfortable with rest

afraid he’ll be snared if he stops

Yet still,

this glorious flying song

raising far above like a hymn

doesn’t quiet my need for touch
