Wing’s Farewell

They stayed for a time

Circling the sky

Waiting

To reach the Heavens

.

They waited and watched

As the coffins

Were brought out

And the people wept

Missing their company

Their light

Not visible in the face of death

.

The birds

Shed feathers

Farewell

Said they

As they fly away

Into the night

To reach heaven’s wall

The gate to eternity
