Warbler’s Speech

a rapid, staccato tune,

drizzled into the silence

between eighth notes.


in a world of clang 

and clatter,

what does it matter

that she sings faster?


she will fall from the sky

in a season or two.

those who truly listen

are the rare few.

    1. Thank you Derrick. I have to do some public speaking in June. We live in a sound bite society, and I have that to consider as I speak. It may be the reason that micro poetry is becoming popular. Interesting!😊
