The bird comes close

The bird comes close
and dodges
near and away
around the morsel
of silence
in the palm of a still hand.
It will take time
for the bird to come close,
time for the bird
to take the morsel
it’s hungry for.

It requires
for a long time
nothing else.

I am grateful
you hold so still.
