The bird with the glass eye

Recommended Posts

eclipse

 

I dreamt about a forest where I

exchanged blood with one of the
trees, a bird with a glass eye sat
on a branch in silence as visions
of desecration passed through it's
synthetic eye. I froze with the earth,
trees grew new worlds, the bird found
our earth, I was the conduit as it communicated
images of a flourishing ecology. 
I want to create a glass earth within everyone
to incubate a paradigm and leave fingerprints
as plentiful as the forests, to test commitments
to the cause and making a covenant with a  
distant precious bird.

I like the progression from the bird's glass eye to a glass earth and how the speaker longs to be an ecological one with nature. He gives credit where credit is due: to the distant "precious" bird. Nice work, Barry!

A distinct 'vision.' A ceremony of making the synthetic organic. Nice work.

I like the poem for its cohesion flowing gracefully from opening to the end with the bird with the glass eye as anchor.
