Fly South, my beautifully benevolent birds...
Even you must sense the sky lowering upon this land
Empires are falling, and fading genders have become meaningless

My veranda, now covered in leaves, was once your sanctuary
Now, icy winds have slammed shut the doors to my charity
I hear you calling out my name, but Iím not really listening

Today my world ends, and by tomorrow Iíll be gone
Iíll no longer rebuke your raucous calling...no, not ever again
I wish you could fly away with me, my friends, beside me always...

Öbut you never would.


("FOD" - Foreign Object Damage)

Bluesy,
I got to tell you I was tracking you just fine until the third stanza where you are leaving got me kerfluffled. And since you aren't one to divulge the secrets of your poetry I'll just scratch my head and nod like I know what's going on. ~L

Just a little fiction mixed with non-fiction, Miss Lori.

The reality is I don't have a veranda, just a simple porch that some might call a deck.
It's a bit like me, more rustic-looking than pretty.
