September – week 1

howling wind —

led by hunger

this tiny goldfinch

ignored

the weather warnings

~

chill winds…

how the goldfinch clings to

the sunflower’s heart

~

one man’s rubbish

is another’s

gold

gulls wheel

over the tip

~

until…

she curls around a memory

of herself

this golden timepiece

summer’s fading pulse

~
