The Invention of Birds

The second annual collection from the Island Women Poets

Dedicated in loving memory of Sheila McMaster

I sit with my threads and needles,
my mindís eye
filled with the brilliance.
My fingers stitch feather to wing,
carve bone hollow as flute,
start the minute machinery of heart.

from "The Invention of Birds" by Alison Watt
