Starlings

--for William Michaelian, again

Startling but not
Really alien, as in

Earthlings reaching,
Lifting them-

Selves up and out
Of the blue.

(This came up after reading William Michaelian's poem here.)

  1. Lovely! Do you know Braided Creek: A Conversation in Poetry, by Ted Kooser and Jim Harrison? You and William have something like that going. A fluid and beautiful exchange....

  2. Joe,

    Thanks for dropping by and leaving your comment(s); living "off the map", as you put it in one of your posts, has isolated me from a lot of poetry being written in the USA. I'll check up on "Braided Creek" as soon as I get my hands on a virtual canoe!
