In Flight--By Joan McNerney--United States

In Flight

A tree waves wooing
birds who fly from branch to branch
looking for a home.

Congregations of wrens
winging off to choral practice
stop at bird feeders first.

An outdoor concert.
Which is sweeter, the flute
or bird song in woods?

Shy autumnal bird
did you brush against the moon
to get that pale down?

Joan McNerney’s poetry has been included in numerous literary magazines such as Camel Saloon, Seven Circle Press, Dinner with the Muse, Blueline, Spectrum, and included in Bright Hills Press, Kind of A Hurricane and Poppy Road Anthologies.

  3. Very nicely done, Joan. A pleasure to read tonight.

  4. Ah, nothing sweeter than a chorus of birds which was wonderfully written of here. Much enjoyed.
