Winter

 

 

 

Grackles swarm to rest

 

on bare limbs that must

 

wait for spring to bring

 

leaves and new life.

 

 

 

A sudden launch

 

and a single turn

 

sends the dense flock south,

 

their stencils of flight

 

following ancient instinct.

 

 

 

Frozen lawns go dormant under

 

continuous days of gray

 

and cold, keeping those

 

of us who do not migrate

 

close to our shelters.

 

 

 

We tend to gather

 

for treats and conversation

 

to cheer us through

 

the long, drab season.

 

 

 

Pop the cork!

Well, IMO, this poem has some mixed feelings. I like how it starts and how it brought an unexpected end. The feeling of curiosity kept growing in me to see where this poem will take me. Nice one, fdelano. :)

 

Happy Holidays :)

I like the way this seems to be one of those 'pause for thought' moments that gives way to the inevitable 'why worry about things we have no control over'.Throw another log on the stove and pass the bottle mate, I'm with you all the way on this one. Nicely done. Geoff.
