Lost and Found


One broken
starling

in gray
ashes

behind
a cold

stove
door.

Isn't that luck, to be lost but found again.....
Dear William i want you to say that i find so much joy in reading No time to cut my hair.... every evening before i go to sleep i read your marvellous short stories. One by one a pearl.

A comment line? Is this the commentline? ;-)

Ah-ha — I know just the story you mean. Thank you, Momo Luna. Your comment is music to my ears.

Great poem and a plug. I am humbled and thankful. Much appreciated, William.

William Michaelian said...

You’re quite welcome. And it just occurred to me that the title serves for the entire post, and not just the poem.

Another good poem that reminds me of past, a summer cottage opened in the spring. Dead birds in the flue of the old wood burning stove. Thank you.

William Michaelian said...

Thanks, Anthony.

once again, i love these short, meaningful pieces. the imagery seems to move from light to dark, from hot to cool. very well done.

Thanks very much. In poems this short there’s always a gamble — or so it feels to me. One wrong word among eleven (in this case), and I lose. Your comment makes me feel like I won.
