I am so delighted to share my new poem with you.
I worked on ” A Fragile Thing,” most of the day yesterday.
Listen to the VOICE RECORDING.
A Fragile Thing
By Lynda McKinney Lambert
lone black crow lands on swaying tree tops
high above rushing waters of the creek
crow’s voice hollers out
sharp staccato jabs, high-pitched notes
mingled with swift moving water
build nests on flat rocks
beside a torrent of white-water
near Rhododendron bushes
super stars, each of them
magnificent blooming wall of flowers
before dawn this morning
Life happens slowly
like growth of lavender-pink
hundreds of them
everything in sync
a fragile thing.
