What Inhabits the Sky- the first edition

What Inhabits the Sky

Birds, of course
            And kites
The ambitious leaves of tall trees.

Ideas masquerading as loose feathers
The inevitable wishes of young girls
The prayers of a multitude

Stray bullets
Arrows on a mission
Chimney smoke

Jet stream flashing
Neon darkness
My eyes, my eyes
Your finger point north

Go home. Go home.

Lillie 's first Christmas

Her first Christmas with me. A year ago she may well have been lost. From the records I was given by the Pet Shelter, she was picked up in January in Valdosta.
She's very happy now!
