Hawks Redux

BC15. What do we mean when we say that God is all-knowing?

Four hawks are busy
soaring over sailboats,
interpreting the winds,
defining sky
and cirrus clouds—
and seriously uncertain
which direction wings will
take them short-term.
But long-term, they are winging south,
by anything but
a universal motion.
Watching them, I sometimes
get a great notion.
