Blue Feathers

These are strange waters

and stranger still the waves

and ships carried off to harbor

where bluebirds disembark

wingless

to stretch their legs and forget

for a while

what weightlessness is

and there are roads

away from the shore

into haunted lands

wind over shifting sand

mountains and valleys

and hollows home to sleeping ghosts

woodland paths hung with stars

to light the way

The roads whisper

of shadows in the distance

and soon are strewn with blue feathers

Yesterday marks 4 years of this blog. Can’t believe it! Thanks to all who read (:
