Back 40: While Casting for Trout

The delicate, white-feather legs of a thistle seed
run upstream with the wind.
The fragile physics of a miniature tumbleweed ballet
make it magically spin
against the weight of mountains
while standing still
until
this exquisite balance fails
and must wait to find its moment again
downstream from where you brace your feet
against the current’s will.
