again a thousand egrets fill the sky.

across the water,
across the common
cobweb grey in morning light,
low across empty sunrise benches,
they come.
across the quiet road
to where i have stopped the car
stuck my head out the dawn cold window
to hear their wings passing over,
to feel the murmuring of holy whispers
moving air across my cheek,
to smile at the lightening sky,
to be blessed.
