Birds

flock of birds flying under blue sky during daytime

The scene that I saw in the skies reminded me to smile !

I wrote this poem when just musing over Covid-19.

I just described what I saw and it cheered me so……

It seemed to remind me of togetherness family and community and the need not to despair.

Poem Number Five

Birds

It was a difficult day

The heart was heavy with delayed promise.

The mind -slumped in problems

People laden with sorrows.

The air was stilted and heavy with torments

Collective consciousnesses of anger and tears

Saturated exhalations from crowds of

tormented mourners

When,in answer to doubting Thomas’s

One bird flew

Swooping low

demanding attention,

And,all at once his cry was answered

met by a host of identical flyers ,who gathered

a crowd of individual relations…

they,joined the one who had

been alone.

 I watched them all

dance together,

They

circled,playfully,above my head

long enough for me to admire

before,like ballet dancers

on a stage

they each commanded an artistic exit

And the world seemed a brighter

and a happier place

Embelished by their

joint performance.
