poetry & things

Born of green

Today the sun was not found

only rain amid the meadows

Thistle grew, poking through

clouds – til black of nightfall

Dark wingless bird, shadow of stillness

quiet as stars, so long ago forgiveness

and will it come, soon the dawn,

a day to breathe deeply lunged

or fly away my days born of green

ancient as a forest?
