Secret Meeting

I came upon a secret meeting
between the rabbit and the dove,
they fled in opposite directions
upon sight of me.

A little further on
the rabbit stood so still
a small perfect statue
eyes staring into nothing
obvious ears frozen,
and the dove with a muffled cry
gave up and flew away.

A fluttering ribbon of geese
by some magnetic hand
was being slowly pulled to the west
and the sky to the low east
glowed a hazy neon pink.

I saw a line of cattle with many tiny feet
looking like a giant caterpillar
crawling slowly over
the land.

And the red-tailed hawk screamed
as it looked down at me
and flew away to a secret tree.
While a small steely falcon
looked on.
