A Poem by Different Wings

This sit requires hours
just for me to take in what I see
without even stopping to consider what I hear
A range from my climbed feet
inches beneath my pen
to the peaks beyond
brushed in white powder that
these feet may some day tread
Civilization built up between
set against the granite and the pine
I cannot walk 'cross the
hallowed geography
Mine eyes wanter in their place
surveying as less than spectator
the rise and curve,
shadow and shake
jumble as the opposing edge
in a defensive sort of way
Stoic
Oh, to witness tried landscape
from between two outstretched wings
wing carrying as mine beak
presents each view below and
finally, beyond
winding trails or dripping roofs
should I attempt- and be so centered to
I certainly wish not upon mine enemies-
to hold indefinitely the sitting picture
in a diorama,
I should choose the green of a hunter
some salt
and brittle skin left baking by the shedding Rattle
Then layer upon layer, individual
and true
The cracks and crevasses
and I think I last of all
should sculpt the weary
triad close to me
Thoughtful River
Stout Rails
Nondiscriminating Road
apart for so long
the ways of life and land
allow a meeting
and for a time they walk together
and then forge their separate trails
