Axis, a poem written by Jeanmbb at
Doug Kelley



written by: Jeanmbb



the ospreys are gone
nests still intact
wide and spacious

must’ve been

sometime after
summer’s last
full moon

sometime in
the early days
of her waning

egrets persist
in the shallows still
their heron cousins
suddenly subtly themselves

look away
and everything changes
rest your gaze
and it does anyway
