Lost in Thought — A Poem

“Fallen Leaves” — C.Birde, 10/16

 

Thoughts roost –

blackbirds

in leafless trees at

sunrise,

gloss-winged and

catching light,

throats lodged

tight with

songs unsung

that fall

unheard,

discarded

as dried leaves

rusting softly

back to

earth.

— C.Birde, 10/16

    • Thank you, Anya. I fear, sometimes, that we are collectively losing touch with Nature, with the very world that sustains and supports us, and this influences my writing deeply…sometimes I feel like shaking people to make them take notice, so that we don’t lose any more…but I’ve found that pointing out beauty does much more to awaken others than yelling at them 😉
