symbolic poem

the hunters 

by Jack Straw 


Heath chews on the stem of grass 

time is told by the leaves 

violet smoke drifts up 

from burl by his feet 


vacant eyed -- perhaps a fool 

as many assume 

his mind flows like a clear stream 

without concern 


Hap too is somewhere else 

he drifts with clouds 

over calm seas 

and the gentle flight of  birds 


hanging from its hind legs 

a buck 

completes nature's witless trio 

eyes so dark it's like coming night
