Asters — A Poem

An artfully altered photo looking up through the leafy stems and pink blooms of New England Asters.
“New England Asters” — C.Birde, 9/21


thick ribbed

with insect song;


stretched taut

with cloud,

thinned blue;


soft wrenching,

     v i s c e r a l.

I think of you.

Small birds

sway clinging

to seed heads,



I think of



— C.Birde, 9/21
