Pick Up the Pen

April 20th, 2018

I will put in a part
about a tree, a bird, a nest,
red yarn, straw and
shining tinsel.

I’ll put in a part about
some angels gathered on a cloud
around the throne of God
who was busy elsewhere.

I like the idea that God
is among the people.
So I will put in that part
and take out the clouds

the angels and the throne.
It’s spring, so I will put in
a part about a plum tree
where the bird is building her nest.
