Eye Blink

Eye Blink

I startle the birds
I don’t know how
something I do
a wave of my hand
my footsteps in the gravel
catches their attention
Sends them up and away
over me
Their dark wings
snapping the still air
in half and
in half again
quick as a branch breaking
and they are gone
in the space of time
it takes me to turn my head and look
