Hook-Beaked and Hollow– A Poem


May 4, 2017 by Ray Yanek


Hook-Beaked and Hollow

We are hook-beaked and hollow-boned

Soaring on tails of wind

Roaming through dissipating breaths

With the dust of ancient stars.

We are taloned majesty

Perched upon fence-post pedestals

Surveying shorn acres

For diminutive signs of life.

We are the lazy spread of wings

Wafting on thermals of time.

Pondering the open air
