An Awesome Unseen Hand
By John Cannon

A thousand blackbirds
at once,

Every tree
with ornaments of jet;

jars and grinds
your nerves,

Rampant chaos
it seems,
and yet ―

through all the din
a signal is sent

And then,
as one
they all lift up

And swoop away
in perfect choreography

As if guided
by an awesome unseen hand.
