Bird Leaves

8 August 2016

twist

in the air

 

call

as they fall

 

skeleton trees

clutch remaining leaves

 

twigged palms

useless

 

against the shifting winds

of winter.

 

flicking birds from their perch

careless icicle finger.

 

those that stay

reveal how stark

 

the limbs beneath

the moulting bark

 

poised above

their fallen brethren in

 

attentive stance

 

these clinging scraps

of birdlife

 

frailty

at a glance
