three birds

three birds

stoked

at dusk
on the other side
of the estuary
smoothing into
shadow there
were three gaps
in the granite shade
of cloud along
the ridge
and the sun’s
stoked ember
in each was
a bird
of hope on
lustrous wing,
returning through
the fading gap
to where hope
nests with the
sun that rises
else
where

dusk 10/11/18
te naupata
