A Wednesday Trio


Lord of the feathers,
do not dampen my pinions
as I cleave the air.
~~ ~~ ~~
You spit in the dirt
to keep my heart from straying,
yet I drift away.
~~ ~~ ~~
Tremble on this ground,
for it is consecrated
by ten thousand tears.

  1. All three of these are lovely!!

  2. I agree with Laurie, I like all three, especially the last one.

  3. I love all three of these but i think my favourite is the last one.

  4. That second one is powerful and quite often true.

  5. The last poem is moving enough to be on a memorial.

  6. It is ground that is sacred and strong enough to walk upon over and over again.

    The entire set is lovely. 🙂

  7. “consecrated
    by ten thousand tears” … Nice.

  8. This is lovely!
    I especially like the first one.
    Cleave the air… a wonderful image.
    Great work.

  9. Damp feathers? Not good! 🙂
