The rustle of wings

I’m not going to blog about the mega-moon we had last night (other than to say that it was worth the twenty year wait!). But here’s a first day of spring poem and a link to a news report on the biggest moon in 20 years.

Swallows
Annette Marie Hyder
(First day of spring 2011)

Swallows sail the sea of air
in such numbers that they
disturb the gravitational pull
and set a whirlpool in motion
that pulls the moon’s feet giddily closer
like secret pheromones
of irresistible impact —
the “butterfly effect” as seen
in swales of  swallows
carrying spring on their backs.
