Thursday Thirteen

I pulled this one out of mothballs, revised and polished it,  & reposted.
The truth is: I have only the dimmest recollection of having written it.
I love it when that happens.

Thirteen Ways To See The Wind Chime

1.
Even when there is no wind
the sun makes it sing

2.
I can hear it
whenever I want

wherever I go
even after all these years

3.
day and night
it moves outside inside
a reliable lullaby
an unpredictable alarm clock

4.
even the clouds envy its randomness

5.
we leave it out all winter
let it be tortured by gales and ice
but it forgives us in the spring

6.
audiobeacon. lighthouse. compass rose.

7.
even over jovial cocktails
six musician friends
decline to attempt transcription

8.
crows eye it with suspicion
but the songbirds worship it

9.
soft siren

10.
in sunlight it sweetens
the smell of fresh cut hay
after midnight
adds glow to embers

11.
portal between mere morning fog and blesséd dream

12.
a mystic radio
tuned to the universal frequency

13.
the wind chime
is not what it is
