Feathered Friends

D”Verse Poets Pub – Does your dog wear a raincoat???
Lillian is tending bar with the animals today

Feathered Friends
people sit beneath this tree
watching you, watching me

spilling secrets from their hearts
not suspecting we are smart

enough to even comprehend
the bond between two special friends

so we just sit and until they leave
astounded they are so naive

humble hope

Poetics: Poetry Is For The Birds
d’Verse Poets
the congregation sits in silence
humble prayers take flight as
wisps of smoke
bouquets of daffodils adorned
with skeins of ribbon
the only light amid the
tidings of unkindness
there is no ostentatious orator

with brooding words of deceit
only murmurations of hope
for peace
