Birds on a wire




Birds on a wire are made a melody

the universe is synchronous
its beauties overlap
tunes are made of birds on wires,
as Leonard Cohen sung and
taught us

nature plays its songs for us
riffs are made of days
melodies of suns and moons,
of particles and waves
that are each, but

all her songs belong to us
each is ours to keep
ruthless ones of hearts on fire,
ones sublime and deep
ones both right and
wrong for us

Jim Culleny
