Limited Vision

I can see 
through the far 
arched window 
nodding leaves 
and bright limbs 
rising over my 

I can see 
blue heat 
rising like oil 
thrust high into 
the empty 
glimmering sky; 

But from this comfortable, dark room, 
confined by dimly glowing walls, 
soft light melting 
through heavy drapes, 

I cannot see 
the whole picture: 

The insect 
trembling on the vine; 
the hungry finch darting, 

or the hawk, 
rising on invisible gyre, 
soaring beyond 
my limited vision.
