With feathery strings of shimmering black pearls
The morn stretches orange-pink fingers… welcome.
Before the crescendo of traffic and blaze of sun
Brunts the ripe squawk of birds
I too for flight am light-wired
High-headed and word-fully attired…
Dew on grass bejeweled prisms
Rainbow-spackled liquid prisons;
Pregnant with power overhead lines hummm
An ahm croonin’ too some
One by one avian minions side-step
Down-wire like puffy moppets
‘Til slam of brakes and tooting horns
Disturbs Dawn’s calm and up-come Horus
Breaks the chorus of bird-song…
The afternoon beckons
