fairywren falling



the sky is calling, 
so i wing my way 
                         up
              up
   up 
to say a few words to that 
lonely moon. now 

waxing, Icarus fooling 
no 
one, 
melting into cloud 
cover and ebony’s small 
still voice. twitter
-pated by stars, 

dot-to-dot-chalk

-trying to figure 
out where to begin. 

but sometimes 
you just smudge your 
self silly, 
and give in 


to 
all 
that 
blue.

    Oh love this. The sky is calling, we begin to answer, get distracted by twitterpatings, clouds, chalk, when really all that’s needed is to give in. Brilliant!
