In honor of NaPoWriMo, this site offers a poem a day throughout the month of April.
Songkran is today, and this white doe piece is a continuation of the black and white series of visual poetry by Margaret Viboolsittiseri, 2021.
A Meditative Spirit
A blue jay swoops
From the branches of an Eastern Red Cedar
Knocking berries to the ground
A formation of geese honk
As they cross the James
A cool breeze wrestles the remaining
Ochre from the branches of a ginkgo
Atop the highest branch, a goldfinch sits
Perched above my view
Suddenly, a spirit from the forest
Moves a branch on a Japanese maple
She is albino and perhaps of Chickasaw origins
Entranced by her appearance
I dare not move, breathe, blink
I am convinced
She is not real
But she reveals to me
A true magic as a
Captivating my imagination
She is sacred
Protected, mythological, legendary
From the moment our eyes
A poem by Margaret Viboolsittiseri, 2020
