wind on water

wind on water,
the blue distillation of sky
trembling,
fragmenting,
oaks spread
in fractal progressions,
empty sails,
harvesting light.
the open earth
waiting,
saturated with life.
black swirling constellations
of birds drifting
high on the broken wheel
of the brutal,
capricious wind.
a lifetime of oaks
will not erase the memory.
