Fish Window Number Seven

Fish Window Number Seven

Ever seen a willow in winter?
Scraggly horizontal branches
Dangle thin strips swaying
Against gray sky.

Wind pushes them diagonal:
The uncut tail
Behind a wild horse:
A wild horse charging.

Or a long-hair
Walking quickly,
Attacked head-on
By the same wind.
