Auspicy

she stood amazed, the door
was open, birds
flew through the yard
over which the rain
blew and fell,
glazing everything –

when she saw
how she had misread
the signs
a pattern that she sensed dimly
reformed in her memory
and opened like fingers

she will find them in the trees
they will land on the house
and she will never again
notice them
in the same way –
