dive

3 days’ steady rain
have pushed the worms
out of the ground,
up and about.

Our bedroom window
faces the courtyard,
a perfect seat
to witness sparrows
dive-bombing from the roof.

It’s like watching
miniature
meteoric
coal
screaming to earth.

they dive-bomb
for the errant worms
and errant ways
and yes
in their silent, small ways
teach us
how to
mean it
again.
