Two of Us

1372362_11827492_lz

in the african twilight

an abyssinian nightjar

came to me

mournful

and

broken

for he could not speak–

he stepped into my palm 

cautiously

so that I could hold

  his silent will

against my own–

and we were two

voiceless creatures

alone

together

” I See Myself in Him” by Angie Hoover-Hillhouse
