Sparrow in the cypress


Memory is a sparrow
in the cypress

when burial
is done,

there to hear,
here once gone.

Sparrows


“What is it with you and these sparrows?
All of these poems about sparrows!
Isn’t that a little bit odd?”

Well, actually, I replied, I believe that all sparrows
have authority to speak for God.

If you don’t see God in the sparrows
then you haven’t heard God at all.
