What Happened in San Diego: Poetry Friday

Walking by the sea
on the day of departure,
I hold out my hand.

A feather floats down,
fills my empty, open palm
with ordinary

gull, invisible
as an angel in thin air:
Miracle receipt.

Today's Poetry Friday host is
Laura Salas
at Writing the World for Kids.
Her post features Dark Emperor & Other Poems of the Night,
a Newbery Honor book--announced at ALAMW in San Diego.
