Grackles and other eastern birds flit to
one side and then the edge.
Their tiny lungs filled of

habit that holds my blue- gray
eyes... still. It's in this stillness I'm headed
towards an open field and a lone oak.
Napowrimo day 5: The challenge was to write a Golden Shovel. The last word in every sentence is another person's poem word for word. Instead of using someone else's poem I used one of my own haiku called gray headed oak.
