Item description for Certain Mercies: Poems by Daril Bentley...

From Certain Mercies:
The Great Blue

Watching the great blue heron stepping
carefully, its leg held suspended for minutes
if need be so as to not frighten the frogs
Its insatiable appetite requires it to consume;
seeing the white flag at the hind end
of a deer bounding tauntingly away at one's
Clumsy approach; listening to sooty chimney
swift nestlings through the reverberations
of this fire-fed abyss of brick and mortar
We seek these equilibratory mercies among
the tenuous grace and beauty of this place
we are only oddly intrusive visitors of.
Death, life; suffering, celebration. The scale
hangs suspended in its ageless balance
held over our heads by Harmonia and Mars.
The great blue rises to the glittering ceiling
in the slate-gray evening where at dawn
it was shrouded in the mist upon the pond.
It will head south. Only to a bird is direction
not hidden. The north-running roads are no
check on where the east-running might err.
The voice of the bird echoing in marshland
that is our voice seeking balance with lives
of obscurity, trying to pierce the vague haze.
It is a challenge. It is an apology. It is a call
down through the long chasm of the wind
this fleeting blue plume of incorporeal breath.
