Birds

Autumn Aves

 

Clouds colored Krishna

awaited sturm und drang

paleness of the hour

"Mice!" the barn owl sang

 

Heavy drops are steady

The flighted not afraid

crows cackling over cornfields

a murder on the way

 

Downpour in the distance

stripped of leaves that fled

sparrows dodging arrows 

in a pine tree needled bed

 

Rumbles in the autumn

fall the peridot star

screaming like an eagle to

mammoths stuck in tar

 

Nature knows its timing

watch the flight regroup

southward geese are v-ing 

avoided fowl that swoop

 

Death to all that aviates

as lightning bolts the sky

a hundred birds are falling

and all of them to die

THE PHOENIX

Folder: 
NATURE

 

A mythical bird
spirit of fire
filled with
intense desire.

Life cycle a
thousand years
drenched in a
thousand tears.

tail of scarlet
and golden hue
experiencing
life like
very few.

A nest of twigs
it will build
and then
arise from the
flames
and live again.

near the end
it will ignite
reduce to ashes
on a star-studded
night.

another egg, forms
and begins
the mythical Phoenix
lives again.
