Three Weavers

Someone has threaded a wee basket
securely through the branches of a tree,
and it has made all the difference
to the bird whose nest has fallen,
to that generous hand who held his own
quivering happiness as the bird’s beating breast,
and to me weaving my afternoon’s way
into that resonating vicinity
of secret little gift.
