Burst Away In Flight
Listening to the starlings gather, their chatter
was increasingly boisterous, like children
released at recess bouncing into the rhythm of play.
I looked out the window, wondering where they were
conducting their cacophony, when
with an astonishing sonic boom
- the sky fell down -
the frenetic flock burst away in flight.
