"for a moment" series, cont.

for a moment
at Mud Lake Ranch
the ospreys sang
to each other above
the wild morning glories

their calls reverberated
in a place i've only ever
seen the sunlight go

                        for a moment
                        i believed it to be
                        true that every poet
                        must at least for a moment

                        consider the grassheads
                        bowing in the wind

for a moment
the earth was enough

even the giggly young girls
admitted that something had
changed in the psychedelic dusk
