December Daydreams 10 – “She Always Sang to Blackbirds”
thoughts are like landslides,
as I type words from an old typewriter
her grandfather gave her as a child,
all I can think about is how she lugged that monstrosity
across inhospitable country and back to hell again.
As I struggle to navigate the old wooden docks,
I still see her prancing around the pier
she was sweet and sour, an alternative sunny day
with a girlish grin and a fickle disposition.
She always sang to blackbirds
and believed she could fly without wings,
she was bold, and defiant, but also kind and sincere.
As I stare across the crystalline lake,
ghosts sing songs to the beat of Florida rain…
