Praise Song for a Dab Chick

When dab chicks are first set out to pasture they may be resistant to various archetypal states of individuation, and integration. While surrendering to a gradual blending into nature, including the terraced garden plot, the orchard, the tree as well as underbrush, dab chicks eventually gain strength and learn to lean into the angled brightness of flying. Author Elizabeth Bishop tells us specifically the dab chicks are just excuses for the imagination to enjoy earth’s biosphere as well as the transformative voice of nature poetry.
mum said sad things coming
along in your life, grief-stricken
only leads to tarrying among
the fallen fruits of autumn…….
