Generation

many-generations-1-e1460333953696Does the song bird know?

outlined in whiskered light

casting shadow against

bare branches

does the deer with her liquid eyes?

a swath of red touching white fields

sometimes think on this marvel

reducing and turning

as ancestral dough left, will rise

for children who grow on their vine

like the bean and heirloom aubergine

turning from light to dark

all is circular

even the silver wisp of dawn

calling angels from their sleep

listen carefully as first the world

unfurls her sticky catkin

and limber flees into legacy sky

ask not why this movement

so measured like firing glass

so it reflects both future and past

in echo and mirrored song

first you are born

then you become

stars looking down

upon those left

carrying the flame

  1. Passing down the torch of our ancestors, never forgetting the past generation.
    The new age must keep passing knowledge onto many future generations to come.

    I love this lines sis: calling angels from their sleep

    listen carefully as first the world

    unfurls her sticky catkin

    and limber flees into legacy sky

    A legacy of the people, nobody is forgotten.

    A masterpiece of poetry. Love it.

  2. Hi Feathered Sleep,

    The images are vivid and beautiful. The sense of their connection with connection with each other and with everything really touched me.

    Thank you very much for following and liking so much of my work over time.
