(Hour 17) 14.30pm-15.30pm. PROMPT, theme: “first broken heart”


only together   a few weeks
found fluffball   treeblown
stormshaken   unable to fly
fed you mince  so you grew
cheeky & raucous   clutched
my finger   sat  on my shoulder
beaktangled  my hair
till the devastating day
i didn’t shut   the door
& you flew   straight
passed me   into blue

first time   i recall my heart
emptying of blood   just
for a heartbeat   yet you
never went   too far off
grew up   around the house
around me   raised numerous
broods   countless chicks
& i know you always
had a soft spot for me
just as i   always recalled
your language  of wings
