fly

 

a haphazard weaving

of unclear intention

the drone of annoyance

the beating of

full spectrum wings

the tap

                tap

                                tap

                                                tap

of attempt after attempt

to get through the glass

of the window

and reach the free domain

of the out there

 

the buzz

                buzz

                                buzz

                                                buzz

 

frustrated

returning and settling

high on a wall

 

large compound orbs

focused

on the inside world

 

waiting and watching

twitching and watching

unmoving

                                watching

 

we sit there

like species

caught in amber

transfixed

sharing eyes contact

 

alien minds locked on each other

both thinking the same

 

why does it do that?

that very kind of you to say Mortimer - I'm glad you liked it. I desperately try not to write to a formulae or pattern - so the more varied or off-the-wall I can get it now and again tends to throw things up in the air 😃
Thanks for the kind comments

Your ability to write poems about so meaningless encounters and make them so comical and so well written in imagery is really awesome Ian.

Absolutely loved reading this one
