Feather Gift Valentine

A tiny feather I watched
from fifty feet away
floating and drifting slowly
suddenly landing at my foot
my left foot I retrieved
it with my right hand
placing it in my left palm
a thing so slight
turned sideways it’s invisible
but looked at more closely
its lineaments are cloud-like
so it’s hard not to remark
even in a scientific way
where it learned its art

I think of Renaissance drawings.

Those enlarged details.

Before photography.
