Shaking out the Down 

“I am a feather for each wind that blows.” William Shakespeare

::

Look up, 
the sky’s a fluffered song
of promise. A float of hope. 

Let’s make ourselves a small 
and quiet 
place to gather 
these loose quills caught. 

**Cue the lightning.**

On second thought, 
let’s not.

In November, we poem.

    “a fluffered song

    Because of that reference to the movie Hope Floats, I’m imagining this as a let’s have some fun pep talk from the grandma to the little girl … Bernice?

    I love that movie. ♡
