THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Song Sparrow” by Bruce Willard: sound, before, decades, porch, sparrow, summer, held, hand, bent, fingers, feathers, bone


The Sparrow

I heard the sound before the sight
A sparrow singing taking flight
Held in time and lost in space
Living slow in summer’s pace

For decades more and years ahead
Holding hands, from porch to bed
With fingers bent and bones amiss
Feathers soft as a lover’s kiss

  1. That’s beautiful! We both envisioned the bend fingers of age, but yours is so lovely. Mine was tinged (tainted?) by the bones I’d found in an owl pellet just a few days earlier that were still on my mind!
