What Lies Beneath

Today at dVerse Poetics Pub, we are having a joust of sorts. We are to choose a line (or more) from one of two poems (or both) chosen by the previous bartenders, Brian and Claudia. Here is the link: http://dversepoets.com/2015/02/26/pick-a-line-and-get-that-joust-started/ I chose a line from Claudia’s poem. it is in italics.

Branch blown by the wind –
fingers stick out from the snow
reaching out.
I threw out bread for the birds
On both  ends,
A sparrow perched,
their feathers fluffed with the cold
and bright eyes seeking
out the bits of bread closest
to their perch.
The full branch lay encased
under the snow
holding steady – an invisible bridge.
the sparrows chirp
and cock their heads
and converse about their plans.
later we will cross
tower bridge into the night”.
In the morning
I see no trace of their
tracks but the bits of bread are gone.

It is no secret how much I love my blue sky, through all four seasons.

Wooden hawks emerge
From the earth seeking to join
Their blue sky brothers.

 

I follow Paul’s photography blog and am often struck by his creativity. When I saw this, my imagination saw earthbound hawks escaping their prison. I contacted and asked for permission to use this photograph and was very kindly given that permission.  You can find more of Paul’s most excellent work at:  https://photopaulm.files.wordpress.com The direct link to this photograph is:  https://photopaulm.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/roots.jpg
I don’t feel I have done justice to this image, but, I tried!

You can also visit me and  if you wish, follow me at my poetry only blog, Aki no Koe (voice of autumn):  soundsofautumn.wordpress.com  I will also be posting this on that site.

Please, always remember that if you use another person’s creativity without permission and/or acknowledgement, you are stealing which truly is horrible and snarky.
