Truth

Like me,

said the albino magpie
with machine-gun-like chatter,

truth isn’t always black and white,

and he took off
from the tree,

flying free.

My response to Poets United Midweek Motif: Truth

Susan is back for the Midweek Motif, honouring Gandhi’s birthday with the truth. She has taken a quote from the Bible, as well as some of Gandhi’s own writing, along with a wide selection of poetry, to inspire us to write new poems in which readers can experience truth in action.
