one tiny nest
perched high against a cold december sky
what comfort?
soaking up the gray morning
droplets hang from ripe fruit
waiting to fall or be devoured
what nourishment?
patiently glistening in misty light
springtime found a nest on the backside of my heart
holding something tender and new
what risk?
ruffling feathers on the outskirts of my mind
vacant dwelling places
deceptively slipping from branches
what change?
coming round so season opens into season
only a winged creature knows and she is but flying
not telling
new year’s eve morning

one tiny nest

perched high against a cold december sky

what comfort?

soaking up the gray morning

droplets hang from ripe fruit

waiting to fall or be devoured

what nourishment?

patiently glistening in misty light

springtime found a nest on the backside of my heart

holding something tender and new

what risk?

ruffling feathers on the outskirts of my mind

vacant dwelling places

deceptively slipping from branches

what change?

coming round so season opens into season

only a winged creature knows

and she is but flying

not telling

new year’s eve morning, 2009
