A Poem from the Editor, A.J. Huffman

Walking with Birds

Their language of song and sounding drew me through
the fog.  I followed – no, I flowed
with their foraging flutter.  Soothed by the surf
and their surfacing chatter.  We were one
on the sunlit shore.  Feathered or not, we forgot
our flight.  For a moment,
the sand sealing us in safety as we countered
its calming crests with our silent fleeting.  Call
to the wind:  arm and wing raised.  A prayer
for peace.  Startled,
the scene breaks.  Scattering in several silhouettes
of free.
