Odd Osprey: Shadorma

ODD OSPREY

No raptor
Vegetarian
And misfit
Pacifist
In sum non-breeding migrant
Waiting to go home

Swimming Lessons

SWIMMING LESSONS

the years
give a little more depth

a few acquaintances
mostly simply teachers
never concerned truly

troubles shared
more than understood
and that
alone

playing
sleeping
arguments
took place

toxic words
and apologies
next day

on and on

best learn to wake up
in the moment
some good
some bad

and battle

with love
always lingering
waiting
…..
…..
