Lines of Sight

Lines of sight connect new lovers
like high-tension wires from eye to eye—
you feel the sparks.

That's how a heart discovers
how to navigate an electric sky
like a rising lark

past the gyre where the falcon hovers
through thunder gathering heavy and high
into storming dark.

Lightning scatters below and above her.
Blinded, the lark gives a terrified cry
and God harks.

Collection available! Knocking from Inside
