The Long Fall Back to the Center
"The Long Fall Back to the Center" - acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas, 16" x 20" x 1.5". Ready to hang (sides are painted; no need to frame. Hanging hardware attached)
Tossed under the tree
The cracked bones
Of the owl's most recent feast
Lean like shipwreck, starting
The long fall back to the center--
The seepage, the flowing,
The equity, sooner or later
In the shimmering leaves
The rat will learn to fly, the owl
Will be devoured.
- from "Bone Poem" by Mary Oliver
