Evening Birds

Evening birds are poised
in a moment of stillness,
their alert little heads tilted
to listen for the supersonic,
whistling call that always seems
to come to them from somewhere
beyond the diminishing sunset.

My dark thoughts cannot catch them;
the quick patterns of their flight into
the twilight, bits of black on clouded
blue, are reminding me once again
of abstract art, a seemingly random
and disjointed arrangement that
somehow achieves a constantly
changing and perfect balance.
