Wind Cuffer

Wind-Cuffer*

In the pause afore the gnarl and bite

Of a winter reluctant to feast upon us

The kestrel lands gossamer air light

Pensive between fence and morsel of wood.

 

Spitfire cousin of the buzzard

A filament of wing and feather

Braided into the undergrowth.

 

Any reward is unseen

Measured in slower time in larger beats.

*Kestrel
