Last Day of Poetry Month! Art by Ilse Bolle & Poem by Miriam Sagan

Unseen Bird

seedpods, bark, twigs, vines, grass
wait as a nest

but for what—
unseen bird of the air

wait as a nest
as blank paper for words

unseen bird of the air
everything must come to rest

as blank paper for words
memory waits to forgive

everything must come to rest
knots unravel, scrap metal rusts

memory waits to forgive
the boat holds heavy cargo

knots unravel, scrap metal rusts
can you reproduce the spider web?

the boat holds heavy cargo
comes to shore on the island of tamarisks

can you reproduce the spider web?
the heart has an entrance and an exit

come to shore on the island of tamarisks
boxes contain grief’s encaustic

the heart has an entrance and an exit
beehives of a lost country buzzing

boxes contain grief’s encaustic
but for what?

beehives of a lost country buzzing
seedpods, bark, twigs, vines, grass
