Imagine to be a bird
slicing  air with wings.

Up up over that horizon
soaring through clouds
away from solemn earth.

Shining, shimmering 
far above this sphere
into  clear blue light.

Cutting through sky
gliding over oceans
eyes open all seeing.

Awake all day all night
brushing rushing
against the four winds.

Imagine to be a bird.



Curling into a
question mark
eyes shuttered
lips pursed
hands empty.

Dropping through
long dusty shafts
down into
dank cellars.
Leaving behind
faded day.

That last cup
of sunlight
pouring from
Lulled by
rattling trains,
sighs of motors.

Bringing nothing
but memory
into night.
Now I will    
untie knots
tear off
opening wide
bundles of dreams.



Joan McNerney, Rabena, New York
