POST 172: Red Tail, River, biking, South Carolina, Maine

by Carol Bass

Soaring Red Tails

The rocks rise up to heaven
poking the tires
the sand settles
packed down by the rain
the ant crosses easily now

Farther up the path
red tail preens in a treetop

a partner rises up close overhead
the two begin soaring

The miracle of this day
lays like the river
leading the way
