On Writing

Poem 79 – Equinox Scream & Book Launches

Equinox Scream

a pair of Canada geese
rush on the supple wind

their wings in unison
soar them forward

strong black necks like
exclamation marks  

over an azure page –
a day in the mighty book of living

today’s language is flight
confidently destined to lift

the frosted veil of winter 
in beaks and claws

place it gently lovingly
on shoulders jagged and 

smooth of hero mountains 
for safekeeping

exhaling warm breath
Spring’s mouth opens wide and screams
her roar awakes change


THANK YOU!

Thank you to the Planet Earth Poetry family and big group of poets who joined together last evening for a celebration of ekphrastic poems and the beloved open mic! It was an honour to share words, laughter, wisdom and delight with everyone!
