I Look to the Buzzards

Matthewson Parks

As a kid,

I watched Tennessee buzzards hover through the sky

            their wings tearing through the air

                           detecting heat waves to catch ahold of

                                           spending hours prowling for their prey

                                                            without ever flapping their wings.

Proverbs 6:6 says:

      “Look to the ants thou sluggard”

I look to the buzzards.
