Two Feathers and a Song

They’ve given up on us
the ducks
all quack and quick eyes
have feathered their heads
and drawn away
from such display

The turn about sky
blows pieces of us around
until my hair is in your hands
and your eyes are the sky

On some ground of feet we
walk around puddles
knowing all the while
it is we that melted
and once took flight across the lake
to soar just two feathers and a song

The turn about sky
blows pieces of us around
until my hair is in your hands
and your eyes are the sky

===============================

I NEEEEEED some Martie glasses....
cuz seeing things thru your eyes is just the coolest kind of inspire.
Everytime i read you...I end up shaking me mothy head and smiling.

we'll find what we called our sins were just mistakes."

(smiles) Awwwwwwww, I love this, sweet friend, I love ducks and I just love it when they quack as I always love to go to the lake just to feed them and watch them float across the pond, I especially cry in joy when I see baby ducklings swim behind their parents all in a row! (kiss on cheek) This is breathtaking, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Martie, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

I started picking my favorite lines... and couldn't leave any out. *S* This is indeed a magic carpet ride... and I'm so glad I didn't miss the bus. *G* Wonderful!

Marti, I believe that Blueserenade described your poetry so well with her reply of:

"Your voice just carries in the wind."

Warm hugs,

I'm with JM...to see the world through your eyes,
even for just one day, would be incredible.
Hugs to you, friend,

SweetSis~
I came in search of an afternoon song ... and found the gentle lilt of 'two feathers' lifting me up, carrying me through memories~

There is beauty in all you have known~
Thank you ... thank you for sharing it~
