poetry by j matthew waters

ode to the sea bird

bird of prey
invisible in flight
dies a hero’s death
rises on the other side

bird renewed
transgressing in time
dives past new moons
attacks as meteorites

bird of the ark
born inside a lab
circles among the clouds
destined to find land

june two thousand fourteen

  1. Love the imagery of a bird lost and found. Great work, John!
