tonight

i saw
me

for the first time

standing
in the grass
bare foot, as
cool air
sank
low
to the
earth

a shining
girl

feeding chicks
peeping
for water
for scratch
for a
mother

tender hands
cradling birds
laying
hens
pulling hay

a small
bird girl a
broody hen
feathers puffed
dust bathing
and singing

i saw
me
for the first time
tonight
