In Mid Flight

stillness speaks

like a bird with a broken wing

the way of song, essential

the freedom to fall, forgotten

heaven is for real

we are but a coke machine glow

between darkness and light

 

 

Written for dVerse Poets Pub.

Bjorn has asked us to dust off some books to create some “spine poetry”.

    “stillness speaks like a bird with a broken wings”, the titles work well for you. That “coke machine glow” snagged me too.

  3. Wonderful poem.
    And the first two lines are heartfelt.
    “stillness speaks
    like a bird with a broken wing”

  10. Coke machine glow — it’s a powerful and very visually strong line. I also like the line about how Heaven is for real. Nice write?
