nell poem

my eyes are mazed into miracle
wondering & tracking
the sweep of these days
the grain of them

nell in the tall grasses
gracing them
blond laugh burbling
between the everywhere of birds
gabbling after ducks
reaching high
to gasp the flight of damselflies
decapitating the elven-topped clover
peeking into daisy surprise
-- every one bursting its sunshiver center

"my eyes are all gone" she said
