Poem & Reflections

You never know where and when inspiration will come or in what form. I was walking last Sunday night killing a little time. The phrase "point of departure" entered my mind for no obvious reason, and I thought I'd like to write a poem with that title. A block further and I passed the bush referred to in the following poem. Serendipity, I guess....

Point of Departure

Starlings innumerable and
invisible are chattering
within this bush. It is
well after dark so something
must have startled them
into what for them
must be song.
