Sky Watch Friday

I have merged two skies here, for a purpose ....



Blackbird

Stripped, stark fingers of a February tree
Scratch the morning sky,
reach out and up;
eager to draw.

Caught midway in its branches,
as an abandoned black glove,
fingers fanned out and down,
held limp in stillness; a silhouette.

To this, a sudden rush of energy lends
full-bodied quiver of life;
vibrant third dimension against
a silent tree-etched sky.

The blackbird rises
on a trebled note of song,
to herald incoming spring.

Beautiful words for an extraordinary photo.

Your poem is lovely. The photo and the words are so well matched, yet each has a life of its own.

By the way, what is PEN? You and another blogger have both mentioned it as a venue for a surrealism exhibition?

Happy weekend,
Gina

Spangle and Gina - my thanks for your comments and for your support of my blog.

PEN??? Are you sure that it was me??? It doesn't ring a bell in my mind.

Oh my! There are not enough words to describe your post. I am enchanted by this passage - To this, a sudden rush of energy lends
full-bodied quiver of life;
vibrant third dimension against
a silent tree-etched sky.
