You speak in gaggles of geese

But I am in flight with kettles of hawks

Tipping my wings to wisps of clouds

Watching the mischief of mice below

 

You take the stand of flamingos

One foot planted, uncommitted

But my heart beats in murmurations of starlings

My eyes flutter in the charm of hummingbirds

  4. I like how you give opposing views and what works for one may not be the others “cup of tea.” To each their own! Love your last stanza.
