Immature Common Yellowthroat Warbler (Geothlypis trichas)-8.jpg

observation flame
locked in light along a line
dark distant parade
quiet crackling chorus
firebreak fragments falling

thank you andree for the use of your beautiful bird photos!!

adrift in another life living in the southwest of australia.. the shadows of burning falling scent draws me out into night… conscious curiosity found myself watching the firebreaks burning fierce at night in the distance paddocks from one end of the horizon to the other seemingly creeping closer and closer.

Sunshine

i was clearly unconscious
observation incoherent

feeling so fine just like today
yet he caught me comatose

end of summer blue skies
hot sun warmth and fire

coming too close he
started and stirred a spark

his hello handshake
stole my standing slumber

sleepy senses scream
so soft a rousing

now i want him
in the worse way

unwhole i am
unlike before

wondering why
and will we
