Synchronised flights ---
Delicate ballerina figures of that sea shelled jewellery box
Forlorn and melancholic
in her mind's ear.
The air of flight
Memorising and mocking
The rush of life and melodies of spring
They breathe new life
She thinks of the gifts of suet
In the final stages of life.
His admiration for the birds
As he greeted and lost each day.
What happened in between -
What happens now in between --
