Stay alert: Safety can change to danger
and danger can change to safety;
the blue sky turns black
the black sky turns blue;
the place of danger is now a place of refuge
which can change back to a place of danger again.
Ducks know this. The duck’s nest on land is abandoned
as soon the eggs are hatched, as they head to water;
safety is always in flux
danger is always in flux
It is the way of things.
