An Ascension

By itself reality isn’t worth a damn.  It is perception
that promotes reality to meaning.
                                                            - Joseph Brodsky

of  starlings
all or one unwinding
pure syllables of sky
a shape
and mind unfolds  
where only movement
in a singularity of senseless beauty
or ornithological  event
god’s truth
as usual            
within the churning the birds
and I
are all that matter
at twilight

- K. V. Skene
