A poet speaks a language
Silence asks the question
Of an unfamiliar path
Does a bird look for
One feather lost
If she still has flight
And knows the way home?
Ah, if you find a wing
Then cry

I penned this in the wee hours of this morning. dverse prompt is any poem of choice so I will link this one

    Poems that arrive in the wee hours are the best, and this one speaks to me Mary, particularly the lines:
    ‘Silence asks the question
    Of an unfamiliar path’
    ‘Ah, if you find a wing
    Then cry’.

    Loving the title with the question posed in the poem….and then the admonishment, if you find a wing, then cry. Sometimes amazing thoughts and questions pop into our heads in the middle of the night, right? The bane or blessing of the creative mind 🙂

    Gosh, it’s been awhile since I dreamt in poetics. Last year, I did compose a whole long poem, woke up and captured a lot of it.

    I would cry if I found a wing! I love birds and feel very tender for them. I envy those, like you, who are inspired in the wee hours or those who can dream and wake up with poems already written in their minds. I think Kim said she does that. Wow!

    I like the comparison of the lost feather with the lost wing.

    That contrast between one feather lost… and then a wing is so stirring.
