Notice What This Poem Is Not Doing

The light along the hills in the morningcomes down slowly, naming the treeswhite, then coasting the ground for stones to nominate.

Notice what this poem is not doing.

Notice what this poem is not doing.

Every person gone has taken a stoneto hold, and catch the sun.

The sun, the earth, the sky, all wait.

The crowns and redbirds talk.

The lightalong the hills has come, has found you.

Notice what this poem has not done.
