I wrote this recently after going to see Starling Murmurations at Potteric Car nature reserve a forty minute drive from my home. As dusk fell the starlings flocked in the sky. It was one of the most incredible things I have ever seen. (I wish my photo’s had done it justice!) When we are allowed to travel again I would highly recommend it.
My heart beat Held in a signature - Of wings that drift Link ink dropped in water A gathering of flight Gentle murmur A ribbon floating Rising, falling The crest of my breath Held in a cloud Eddying flow Flock, swirling A raining, winged, beat dance A rush of rhythm on air A collective sweep of hope Drifting force Natures prayer
I hope you enjoyed this poem! A little bit of escapism for bank holiday Monday.
See you on Wednesday for the Connect to Nature online writing class.
Ooooo – I haven’t got the ones you mention, I will look into them. I’m slowly growing my own nature…
I love your book selection. The Way Marking book is one I look at often and have given to friends…
You truly did captured the tranquility in the picture:)
