Watching Sunrise over Mountains


two words eliding together


clouds tearing at seams, re-feathering for day

crows flapping wings 


same word for ship and plane


what does this say


world catching between peaks


yesterday / tomorrow

sun framing itself, emerging at top: crowning


each stroke missed, making


lake holding glass to sky, symmetrical and angular

single crack for pedal boat


god or mountain


droplet-shaped face with no hair



same word for he, she, they


beating from cluster of cells

child that makes wo/man


sun, never-perfect circle


shortened to ‘wo’, looser version of ‘who’

when do they form


they, spreading halo wings, light falling coloured

they, shining yellow before blue


crows flapping wings against hazy hue of risen sky

who are we to decide
