Sky-High Grasses — An Image

“Sky-High Grasses” — C.Birde, 12/16

Like pale, slim blades

of sunlight,

dried Autumn grasses

stretch skyward

and bow their heads

to chilling winds.

— C.Birde, 12/16

  1. your image in the first two lines is striking. and reading the lines aloud again makes me realize how important the sounds are to the impact. the “chilling winds” provide a counterpoint. you’ve managed to capture much truth about life in this brief poem.
