Moonbeams and Magpies

A moonbeam crossed my path the other day

and a magpie flew by with construction material in his beak.

Broad daylight extending the ways things

move beyond boundaries.

The movement of moon and

magpie across

the changing landscapes of ground

and heart.

Lighting and building something, somwhere.

Mayflies mingle in the dreamtime and

the blue bird says, “Good morning.

Are you awake yet?”
