I was at a stop light
when my driving-home
thoughts were interrupted
by a lively noise.
I looked out my open window
and saw the swooping autumn sky
filled with shiny blackbirds,
and the drooping telephone wire
jam packed with them–
wing to ebony wing.
I thought immediately of
but these birds were thrilling,
Their raucous energy filled me up.
