Fiona Davidson

(From beyond time)


A swirl of shadow races across
The clear blue sky that seem to hang
Turning mid-air to follow a pathway
Imprinted on the memories of hundreds
Vanishing behind trees and houses
To reappear on the cityscaped horizon
Twisting once more they fly past
To land settling on tiles and guttering
Roosts long argued for by nature
As the starlings rest for the night
Jostling and crying out into the night
Amazing feat of aerobatics gone
To be remembered again tomorrow

    Beautifully penned there Fio. This one is special
    because of its descriptiveness and imagery.
    Paints a very colourful picture. (At least to me)

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
