(three)

.

they were still watching
the river
that flowed in two directions
i stood by them
and put the mirror in front of them
this time they didn't close their eyes
they simply started to look
eagerly
i found myself confident enough
to caress their coarse bark
suddenly the river dried up
soundlessly
and scorching winds began to blow

none of us ran for shelter from the heat
i felt wings flapping in my head

.
