Finding a
tiny
feather
on the
sidewalk

does not
mean you
can grab it.

do not
try to
nail it down
beneath claws;

the wind will
pick it up
and fly it
away

[do not try
to make
nest of it]

it may look
like a part
of you,

but it is
not you,
or yours.

it belonged
to another
bird-

-now
nothing
at all.

[attached
never
really
means
ownership]

probably
did not
all along.
