On the side of the highway

an outstretched wing

unfurled black

feathers twitch in the breeze

that no longer lift it.



On the side of the highway

unfurled curls of black

tires lie.

In the wind of passing traffic,

unwound wires twitch.

I blink.



did I see?

    Few lines that pulled me in…well done!

  2. I often have to look twice as well – always hoping for black tires 🙂

  3. I hope the bird was not in any way affected by the vehicle, to which the tires were attached.

What do you think?
