there are some who say that there is a right
and a left in (the) heaven... – Aristotle

Times when the world
is most spherical, casting
its curved shadow

on the moon, water
and light follow
rules, there's a grid

you can count on, but
now, in this alley of slant-
time when an iron hand

draws a latitude/longitude
of shattered glass, a chaos
geography turning,

in the heat, to dogma,
we're caught in an old vise,
pressed narrow, almost flat.

New neighbors

The eagles are back, and we are able to get a clear view---till the surrounding trees leaf out...we love watching from a distance. Shot these about an hour before sundown. Momma and Poppa were switching places on the nest.
