Being Still

“But these are flowers that fly and all but sing…” — Robert Frost

I often catch the movement 

above me as I walk along 

the garden’s edge, and I know, 

if I am patient, one will alight 

near enough to see. I thought 

the cold winds from a few days 

past had called and lifted them 

on a current further south, but 

these little shadows danced 

around my head, so I stilled 

myself and waited, kneeling 

down under the nearest

branch.  She came, settled

on a purple bloom, and we 

enjoyed a little breeze, the nip 

of cool, the high sun, and the joy 

of being still.
