MAGPIE...Prompt #189


                                                             image/ CRILLEB 50


THANK YOU, Tess, at Magpie Tales


ABOUT TIME

Got a minute?
There's one flying by,
looks like a Bird of Paradise,
just sliced itself out
of its speckled haven.

Pure before sin,
living its first minute
as infinity licks it clean.

A free pass,
then life spreads its wings.

I love that it's so short too. The length of the poem itself - brevity, the soul of wit, yes?

All in a moment. And then...


Love
