BIRD

bird

sweet soprano,

singing solo

in an operatic dawn


bird

free-wheeling,

flow-flyer

on filigree feathers


bird

car-crashing,

window-bashing

feather dust on glass


bird

air-head,

worm-fed

hollow-boned creature

I'm reading this just after a goldfinch flew into my dining room window with a mighty bang leaving a feather duster imprint. Its taken a while to recover but has just fluttered off, sore-headed and bruise-boned.
