Starlings

A gogyohka – a five line untitled, non – rhyming. non-syllabic requirement Japanese poem. I have given this one a title to make it easier to differentiate.

Starlings
“Now panic beats and flutters inside my skull like a flock of starlings locked in an attic.” Stephen King

a cold rain is falling –
starlings float in the sky –
uncomfortable dreams awaken –
on a road to nowhere
the panic overtakes me
