Twitter Communal Poem
The green leaves tremble feeling shy
until shivering their blossom into flight.
On a magic mushroom the grasshopper chants
lines of wisdom, lines of rhyme, lines over ten thousand times
He continues his solemn chant until the moon rises over the misty river.
Hearing the call the giant white eagle wakes from his decade long slumber.
wings expand -tufts breath - talons release from dream time's grasp
Anaba sweeps the hogan floor –Manaba whispers “our time is come".
The eagle knows; wings fan a moon into the eyes of the grasshopper at Manaba's feet .
Sweet sounded words the poets' glory; that was our little springtime's story.
