Blackbird This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Creased fingers pluck old strings
Closed eyes
Moving lips
Blackbird sound

Old skill brought back
Old song
Old notes
Old love and care and moments

Fingers play
In the dance of home
Invisible notes
Fly

Tickle my throat
My eyes

Wrapped in blankets
Warmth flows through me
Around me
In me

Out the window
‘Round the world
In my heart
The music sounds

For some reason
I cry

I like this. It reminds me of that bird, that music I always seem to see and hear.
