30/30/22 Day 1: Fools

That little bird, the other day
singing in the morning, tipped
his hand - how little he cared
to hide from our great galumphing 
presence; though we did
construe his slight and ruffled lozenge
of a body, eye-height at the trailside
as an offer, along with his voice - 

What else in this very moment
sings? Only everything.

The invitation stands.

Hi friends. It’s National Poetry Month. Time to play 30/30, wherein the goal, game and invitation is to write a poem a day for 30 days. I first encountered 30/30 via Robert Okaji back in 2015. Since then, I’ve played it, alone and in groups, though never yet as a fundraiser. For me, it’s been more of a mojo-raiser, a commitment to respond to the world’s song, in written verse, on a daily basis.

Here we go!
