California Notebooks, September 2013




hushed – heat isn’t the cause


willfully watchful of this silence

pregnant of barely perceptible sounds


the sky one solid color


velvety wings moving

producing no noise they found

no obstacle


not even the hamming birds

make noise I rest at last


desire raises


not to move

ever abiding surveilling

the light severing the valleys

when it falls
