As the crow flies

As the crow flies
       or the hawk
that all-consuming
       view of the world
noting the slightest
       alteration of detail –
how we map our lives
       And our relationships

There is in all of us
       a natural hunger
for love
       for acceptance
for the pleasure
       of being with another
or among others
      for the sharing
of full-fleshed
       feelings and emotions
