 Spirit Chimes

Follow the Birdsong


Somewhere a bird stumbles
out of its
fragile night,
wet with promise,
stunned by life

and one day it will
sing the daydream-colored
song it learned in heaven,

something about
unquestioning love
and creation:

so much glitter,
diamond waves,

weightless on the
tips of reborn oaks
as if green needed
more melodies,

and I chase the starry flutes,
rise and fall with
miraculous wings

and step out of
ideas such as limits
and moments with
a beginning and end.

So easy.

One thin shell between fear
and understanding.
An infinity right now and for
now, nothing hidden.

With that hawk rewriting
a simple sky and a crowd
of music all over
free-flowing blue,

I stumble out of my fragile night
and remember a song
of creation.

Patricia Joan Jones
