Blackbird’s Soar

Blackbird’s Soar

on the wings of night
moments arise
t
hat free the eyes
to see
what’s broken and dead in life

in morning’s light
 the blackbird’s soar
frees the heart
to see
living possibilities

    Thank you so much, Claudia. Yes, I think it does. There are huge black birds that soar over my house and the woods around here. I love seeing them soar and seeing them land in a tree.
