flight

some birds, they fly so fast
so fast that their wings
cleave the air like feathered hammers
wingbeats striking the ear
so loud that your head swings to
look, to follow, your eyes
too slow
too slow to catch them
but your soul
your soul leaps out and
hitches a ride into the blue.

    I found your site a couple of months ago and subscribed to updates.
    Coming back today I remember why: the poems are a joy to read. They conjure up convincing and charming pictures, and the voice is consistently natural and enchanting. I look forward to more when you have time.

      Thank you John. It’s good to hear an encouraging voice from out there in cyberspace. I have some poems mulling around in my head, I’ll try to get them written down now.
