aside from human events

feathered sentinels
on post pre-dawn, full alert—
sun still buds and blooms

    1. Me too. It captures how I think of the turkey vultures that recently returned to our area. One has perched on an old grain elevator every day, hunched there since it has been back.

  1. And I love the final line! I like the idea of the sun doing something we expect from a flower – and the sun does bud and then bloom, whether you think about it rising or shifting into spring and then summer. I also like the idea that no matter what happens in the world, the sun continues to rise.

  2. “On post pre-dawn” is my favorite! I love the feeling of resiliency in this – humans might screw things up, but damn if nature isn’t still going to be beautiful in the morning.
