Impressions: White feather.

Give me a theme, and I’ll write the images that occur.


Bird of Heaven, fate of sailors; poets’ curse-cap: Albatross, great-winged.

Down and comfort, asleep on feathers, child, mother, love.

Blood spattered dove: The mating battles tearing the bird of peace.

The massacre: Fox-hunted, falcon-prey; feathers melding gore into the grass.

Mask of white feathers, masquerade. Swirl of light and scandal.
