elegy

shimmering rabbit
now you’re on the other side
of Sunday’s window

and your sleek sister
must be out back in the brush
still waiting for you

does she even know
how you’ve shown yourself to me
among the clovers?

that you prophesied
the Alpha and Omega
with one gleaming stride?

will she next wonder
as you held me wondering then
about the highway?

    Saw her sister today, staying out back, safe from the road

  2. Oh dear…but this one has been given an elegy, and an unusual-for-rabbits immortality.
