BREAK/FAST (A Dream-Based Poem)

[Awakening (Judgment) card in The Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert]


We stand outside in the gloom
watching as birdseed cascades
from the broken window feeder
"But we have to fix it," I say,
"Or we'll have flocks
of wild birds gathering"
"Exactly," he says, an elfin grin
on his golden face
I spin around to look toward the east,
my hungry spirit
lofting with the sun

I'm not sure when I wrote this poem, but it has to be close to 20 years old. I know I was living in my current home because at the time of the dream I had been considering setting up a bird feeder on the terrace. Hm. I just remembered that a roommate who moved in some time after the dream did start feeding the birds from our terrace. :-)

I'm glad you can see them. :-) It was one of those dreams that really lifted my spirits.
