Bird Disappearing

After the windstorm
and the snowfall,

the clouds were wildly
dancing

with the light
over the mountains

when I looked up
and I saw her —

the black silhouette of a bird,
her wings open,

catching the breeze
but being blown

left of center,
onto a new path through the sky

and I heard God say
as she disappeared

I will  take you away.
