MORGANS BIRDS
In the almost tallest tree, Morgan’s birds wait.
sky near full blue but for clouds come from all the way westtangled up with sea shape breezes tasting salty even here.

 

yellow wasps angry buzzing in but rarely back out the kitchen windows

maybe unable to remember it’s only august and wild apples by the dozen still lay strewn along the back garden.

 

rugosa roses stretch up the stone of this house

where through the last while of the day

sun hits strongest.

sometimes my own fingers search out along those warm textures as if

attempting to discover something they need to know until

I must say thank you right out loud with out even figuring out who to.

 

 

in the almost tallest tree, Morgan’s birds wait.

they have time to be patient, preening, cackling, shifting branches

occasionally engaged in soft arguments,

remind me of some vague song until

like a shipwreck in the sky they rise.
