New Purpose

twig & feather
twig / feather / stream — Nena Black


Walking along a woodland path,
she chanced upon a gentle stream;
she stopped for a moment of quiet reflection,
when an intriguing scene caught her eye:
a birch twig and crow’s feather…
laying together at the water’s edge,
each released from its former purpose,
perhaps once feeling discarded,
now resting together
in an infinity of stillness,
with new purpose
to discover
and become;
it made her consider
her own.

      1. That is so clear, Nena, visually and verbally . . . he did write poems while walking to get rhythm into them . . . And “it makes her consider her own” . . . deep insight here . . . considering one’s own changeability, the only constant . . . one’s impermanence, and how we gotta flow with it. Someone deep in Nena . . . maybe Anen
        . . . just thinking

        1. Mickey, my dear, you are very correct… Watching that branch and feather… listening to the flow within… ‘considering my own’ purpose. Indeed, and I hope it will spark others will do the same. ♥ xo
