New Poem of the Week: Bluebird haiku


IMG_1236

 

This is a poem, a haiku, I found in a lightning moment. The bluebirds, who have not migrated this year and who normally arc and swoop through the sunbeams over the road, lying in the snow, tucked and snuggled up into the downy arms of winter, a spectacle of transformation from something so joyous and beautiful to something unknown, unutterable and entirely beyond my vision.  Currently part of my winter journal, it may be included in the manuscript I am working on, Owl Light.

If you like this poem, consider reading a few of my new poems on my blog and checking out my book Span (Rhizome Publishing 2011, 2012) which can be purchased as an eBook and read on most devices or as a beautiful paperback to be held in your hands and taken with you on your day.  The cover art by Mathias Valdez of Last Leaf Printing takes the book as object” concept to a lovely level.  Span also makes a great, inexpensive gift for the book or nature lover on your list.
