What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives?

Quotation by E. M. Forster

“The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.”

– Quotation by John Muir

 A Thousand Birds by Hilda Morley

 

A thousand birds—they flew out of
your mouth at your dying,
                                       as you said
                                       they would
& bewildered me:
                         They bewilder me still.
Nearly 48 months have passed & the beating
of those wings has haunted,      filled
                                              this room
                                              where I
sit now writing, the room
where you died:
                         a clattering
of wings has passed through these walls.
                                    Something has stopped.
                                    Something
is unable to go any farther.
                                    The wings are
                                    still now
                                    & I rock from
                                    side to side
                                    with the faintest
movement barely perceptible because I cannot
breathe in this stillness
                                        & must set that power
moving,
               those enormous wings
flying again
A Thousand Birds from Cloudless at First by Hilda Morley
(Kingston, Rhode Island: Moyer Bell, 1988)

"Featherheart"
was chosen as
the name for
this blog
because when
I remember
to keep my
heart light as
a feather,
life is much
easier.
