poem for a bleak palm sunday

Every now and then one should write a poem as spare as this--


Wind lifts lightly
the leaves, a flower,
a black bird

hops up to the bowl
to drink. The sun
brightens the leaves, back

of them darker branches,
tree's trunk. Night is still
far from us.

---Robert Creeley
