Dance of Cranes: on Coming Home - SF


It waits on the wedge of a field
no longer lonely, another
 floats in for a landing above
 a sea of yellow flowers

Who will  forget that wonderful fuss,
the mock scolding  of an absence
now  being celebrated
The preaching  by a full range of
 vocals - wing tips folding and unfolding
against a new, and thinking sky

For Andrea's SF Contest

    wow, suz, i kept going back and forth on this one, whether to give it a first place or second. So nice to see you are the author of this well crafted piece. It is exactly how I imagine perfect free verse to be! I am curious . WHy did you call it a thinking sky? Congratulations!!

    hi Andrea: Such a thrill. Thanks for placing my poem......I used 'thinking' more as an adjective to give the sky a thoughtful, intelligent, reasoning, philosophical, reflective, contemplative, meditative tone.
