Within A Feather

Lark Morrigan
Jul 19, 2020 · 1 min read

Within a feather,
I can see another light
that time never knew —
great mysteries transcend grief
and eternity remains.

I do not yet know
what the light is telling me
or where the feather
was a humble sojourner—
but I know the light’s still there.

The wisdom of birds
is mine to keep, for I see
a weightless spirit
within me — capturing a
lifetime of infinite flights.
