I’m so happy to be a part of Irene Latham’s celebration today. Her blog is a great source of inspiration for me and many other writers and readers. I will add to the celebration with my original poem all about writing and following one’s instincts as WILD as they might be.
trust your instincts
saw two pterosaurs fly overhead today
you probably saw two blue herons, some might say
ha, I laugh, two blue herons
the pterosaurs drifted across the clear bright blue
graceful, wild, beautiful
in a sweep of near-silence, without a flap
gliding in from 200 million years ago
ha, two blue herons
if I believed what some say
I’d never write poems about pterosaurs
