Life at No.22, Poetry

Bye Bye Butterfly

Animal print stained glass
Like this hang glider
Visible against pottery blue sky
Hooked on green,
Slurping scarlet without a word
Wings speaking with praying hands
Fine line the reach
between heaven and earth
Can we hope to contain this life
Our own heart, our own planet
its voice,
It’s repeating grief.
