Silent Witness (ode to a feather)

Delicate remnants of mighty wings

Once
In tight alignment formation
Our shoulders side by side

We carried eyes aloft
to experience the far corners
of the sphere

And oh!

That which we saw!
the wonders!
the wonders!

before we flew too close to the sun

And now
helpless, afloat, apart
carried by the murmurs of the wind

Our grand memories
our grand memories

powerful

but soon to fade

as we settle and fragment

delicate testaments to our unique journey

perchance to cradle the mind
of a stranger

who can only

wonder

as he lays his head
down
on a pillow
and closes his eyes
to dream
