Eros Unrequited

Though your name does sound like arrows, 
I daresay the conceit must end here— 

As a shaft of light tearing apart 
The heart of this dark sparrow. 


  1. A sudden explosive blast of terror and beauty.

    (Where are my nitroglycerine tablets? urgently enquired the sparrow-identifying reader.)

  2. Thanks, Tom--so much for our explosive little friend with his arrow. As for our little feathered friends who dart about in our garden, we are also grateful for having them.
