Something against the sky -
a kestrel wing
or kite
drifting godward -
the circle of sound
dents the morning
and turns my ears
into giants,
second guessing the weight of
air
and how your breath
measures the morning light.

I am sure I've said it before, but even the Sirens, your words would seduce.
Amazing work, Brendan.

Ah yes, writing...I remember doing that once upon a time...

Life has been beyond my abilities to deal with lately. Tell you more later. Glad you got your account straightened out! Forgive me for my obscenely long absence, I feel terrible about it.

The poem matches the picture perfectly. I love the light illuminating the dark figure, very moody. And the poem itself is some of the best quality on this website I've ever read! "The circle of sound / dents the morning / and turns my ears / into giants" flows really well and is quite interesting imagery. A successful result overall. Congratulations!
