linden wing #2


thin green pale

I hoist my, turn my

tapered, paper sail

to wind-tasks, two


first I nudge my mast

of flowers, rudder

to the breeze, my pollen-folk

hitch a ride with the bees

each captured grain a triumph

each launch a score


later, I loose my mooring

detach, hoist spinnaker and main

samara of linden

and passenger seeds

sail away

  1. I agree with Carol. The words do sail. Beautiful. 🙂

  2. The sounds of the words in this poem sail themselves through the air as I read it aloud. Lovely.
