Soundings

Pigeon wings flapping like a flat tire on I-385.
Soft black veins of Lemon butterflies searching for a kiss.
Shutters.
Shutters.
Shutters.
Slamming out summer.

  1. Love the repetition in this poem. I could see the black ‘opening and closing’ before my eyes.

  2. You’ve captured the contrasting sounds of each image with stunning precision!
