feathers

feather illustration 2 Isc

August again,
and the jays are
leaving feathered
remembrances
in ones and threes
on the sidewalks
beneath the trees –
showing sweet-shadowed
maples the best places
for leaves to lay
come October

Back with a new look! The idea is to begin incorporating my photography and art into the poetry blog (tiedtosky.wordpress.com will be phased out). To begin with, I’m working on a series of pieces with little watercolor illustrations. Hope you enjoy the new layout and the addition of my attempts at art. Looking forward to catching up with everyone!

  1. Enjoyed this very much – I too have been finding various bird feathers around the yard. And your artwork is beautiful.
    (Can’t believe fall is coming – we’ve had such a beautiful summer in the Pacific NW this year!)
