Wings

  Blackbirds swoop & zoom
across the green spread of Spring,
sparring like old war planes
ready to dive-bomb,
then, lifting out of free-fall,
they rise triumphant
to land in the topmost branches
of a wall of trees -
sentinels of summer-to-come -
to catch their wings,
then launch out again
into shivering air
to an acrobatic duel;
precursor to finding a partner
& the rigors of nest building,
brooding speckled eggs of cerulean blue,
raising demanding young
grey-feathered with fluff,
growing until nest becomes
a world too small'
for lives meant to soar.
