In Flight

In the slight pause between

Flapping up,

Flapping down,

Live the breath

And the lift

That propel

To carry on.

It was down

To the wire

To find glorious

A perch,

As the skies

Drew around them

A gray dome

As church.

Ode to Pests

For the pests

Who won’t rest

In their quest

To infest:

I suggest

You divest

Lest

I’ll wrest

Back my nest.

I don’t jest

It is best

As would surely attest

The unblessed

Who’d transgressed

And I had ‘addressed.’
