A feather catches the water
Something delicate
Making a sisterhood move like a snake
The feather has finished
It flattens out
It looks like eight feathers
But from the right angle it is only one
A complete connection
A system A cycle
Eyes closed Snake moves under them
The feather bends to the will of the snake
Nine little birds try to make a giant snake fly
Try to lift a giant snake out of the water
With only feathers catching the water
