(Not) A Poem a Day: Swans

Because writing time has been at a premium lately, I’m posting a recently written poem. As we here in the Midwest impatiently wait for spring, the gathering of eagles near open water and the flight of swans makes things bearable and gives us hope.

SWANS

written Friday, March 4, 2022

Two pair of swans,

couples,

flying swiftly

to the northeast

as if sprung from a bow

arrow straight.

Me

below them

limited by where the asphalt

could take me

wished to reach up

to fly away with them

free of roads

free of fences

free of my own

expectations.
