Poem 277 – Murmuration

Murmuration

It’s changing – again
this flock of starling grief
wweeping into new skies of grey pain
holding weather in the forest of my ribs

I miss you, of course
but differently – in less
grand pronouncements…
I’m sorry if that hurts you

Today, I’d give a limb to rest my head
on your shoulder
inhale your smile     pause
in the wisdom of your silence

To lift us into the murmuration of memory
beyond time
