With a murmur

Of whirring wings

An eddy of starlings

Whirls into view

Swooping and diving

Waves of Indian ink

Staining the sky



Fluid and airy

Pointillist abstracts

Helices and pirouettes

Of an aerial ballet

  1. I like the line “Waves of India Ink.” Makes me think of Lewis Carroll’s riddle “Why is a raven like a writing-desk?” Although that’s not a starling.
