“Brightened” – written and read through Walter

The bird perched on branch or wire
I did not try to espy
but instead closed my eyes,
and shutting out sight,
sound became light,
gravity relaxed its pull,
and now weightless yet full
I soared above and beyond,
my chest brightened by song

  1. As always each of your poems reflect something I gained knowledge. I did not know the meaning of espy and once i did the poem took on all new meaning.

    1. Wonderful Judy, I find that when attempting to articulate the inarticulable it is so helpful to draw on words less commonly used!
