A Murmuration of Words

You gave us a shell to shield our chattering words
excitement peeping through the cracks into the
darkness of possibility

You showed us the distant hill to climb
You fed us the images that lit up gestating words.
We hit the button, embraced the hour
filled with gratitude.

We rescued words that Wind Rushed in and
drowning words from smaller boats.
You gathered them, set them free to take root
in the right soil with ears to grow.

When we heard 'We Can't Breathe' we gave voice.
We climbed the ladders to release charred words.
Then we wept words born from the Aftermath of
sacrificed trust.

From all corners we came, stronger together,
You gathered the flock and gave them flight
Thank you.
