only august, by pd lyons


 

 

ONLY AUGUST

crows

almost quiet

only feather sounds

rising

almost still

only slow

steady beating

as if horses

finally

taught themselves

to march in order

across the field

almost green

only smoky

spiral dust

descending

mirage

as if insects

finally

taught themselves

to sing

like falling rain

across the mid day

almost yawning

only August
