King of the Marshlands


Sentry like

At the waters edge;

Grounded, calm, still.

Earth holds you

Elegant wise bird

Of the marshland.

Watchful of opportunities,

Regal wings graciously

Frame your reed like body –

Embracing power and air

In flight.

If I pause, and watch,

Can I breathe in your qualities?
