The Weight of Wings in a Dark Forest
© by Tommie Flannery Baskis
The Lady of dust and woods creates thoughts in dreams upon the weight of wings in a dark forest.
Thoughts that shimmer and drape, a silk white ether, on the cindered soil of forgotten leaf dust.
She, the one they call when shadows no longer follow....
unfolds for a presence of primal sovereignty, grand and hallowed,
a sure force of wings that are never lost
create a stirring of storm sound as the winged soul takes flight
upon the last golden arched stream of light
to be swallowed and silenced by the dark forest
