Murmuration

By Magdalena Ball

 

relax within your effort 
time twisted into a helix 

beyond fragmentation 
coalesce to a single organism 

flock synchrony 
unrehearsed maneuvers 

music and motion 
aerodynamic beauty 

vanishing starlings 
a flight plan 

one hundred and fifty an hour 
gone before we're ready 

this subtle communication 
beyond words 

clumsy ape brains 
banging broken sticks 

Magdalena Ball is editor of The Compulsive Reader and the author of Repulsion Thrust and Quark Soup
