early morning murmurations

whispers in my ear
like a dream preceding sunrise
sweet murmurings making me smile
telling me to stay asleep

there is no place to go from here
other than up
and when I awaken I will go there
speeds exceeding
a million miles per hour

play me something relaxing baby
she sighs in these early hours
well before birds begin stirring
conjuring my innermost thoughts
blasting them beyond the treetops

november two thousand seventeen

the cry of the starling

on this night of nights a lost
starling sings his lonely song
as a pale moon chases
venus high above the tallest trees
and faint stars transit the unknown

on this night of nights a natural
flame flickers and streams
chain reacting and traveling swiftly
to the four corners of the world
sparked by the cry of the lonely starling
ushering in a brand new light

december two thousand fourteen
