Winter Birds

winter birds in the deep green forest

animated by cold, her eyes stunning through the crowd

"I love you."

he was amazed, thrilled.

herons, pelicans, cranes, thoughts.

a shot cracked over the sunset lake, heaven's light

I knew the moment I heard her voice.

any woman knew it

his regret burned dark blue as he said

"I've shot a swan."
