February sun

Far from perihelion

Weak yet effective

Leading sandhill cranes

Ever northward through the teak blue sky

Dodging Dakotas and Cherokees

Not knowing the weakness of their cause

Flying home too early

Going the way of the wooly mammoths

Lifted and dragged by warm pockets of air

Isobars and isotherms

Wingtips spread and dried

February sun of a

Whither goest thou

Towards the warming

Towards the warning

The false dawn

The February sun
