“A Dish of Skylarks”

January 3, 2018


My beautiful picture

To the East….

Paul Scribbles over at Poetics —  What does ‘grace’ mean to you?  I can think of numerous things, but chose this poem below.

Lady Nyo



A dish of skylarks

Fell from the blue

into my lap,

And I, ravenous with

A multitude of hungers-

Ate them.


Between burps

one did escape,

shook himself,


And offered a feather.


I thought it gracious

Considering what I had done

To his neighbors.

The grace of life

Elegant, sublime, stirring

Come into my soul.
