Mirage of trees

Morning fog —
birds fly into
a mirage
of trees —
wing beats
whisper from
evaporating
canopies.

    such a beautiful visual, Tyler.

  2. I like ‘mirage of trees’, like I liked the line ‘a zephyr playing tag’ in your earlier poem. Lovely imagery.

    Wonderful Poetry by Tyler ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. This is lovely, but I have to tell you it made me think of what happened to me yesterday when I was out trying to get some pictures of the moon eclipse. It was still almost dark, and I could see only about a couple feet in front of me. I guess the birds couldn’t see quite that well. Because two of them were flying around totally wildly — but in tandem — possibly courting — or maybe just agitated due to the eclipse. They swooshed through my yard and the neighbors, flitting — alighting — flitting –alighting, etc. Suddenly they swooped past me right in front of my face — so close I felt the wind from their wings — and then before I could have another thought, they came back and one sat right on my hand and my camera, while the other seemed to be hanging in the vicinity of my left shoulder. I was so shocked that i jumped and screamed. Of course, the poor birds took off. I think, in the semi- darkness, they thought I was a tree. So when I read your poem about a “mirage of trees” I felt sort of a kinship with it.

    Evaporating Canopies. The sad part.

    In the winter, here, this is my “across the street” reality. It’s a beautiful sound.

    • I’m so glad you can relate to my poem! Thank you for stopping by and sharing your experience ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend, Annie!
      Cheers,
      Tyler ๐Ÿ™‚
