Original Poetry by Roger Ewing

Migrations

In the meadows

above timberline

little rivers flow

from melting snow

on granite,

looking not unlike

the lights of town.

Only jets fly here

and trains of Canada geese

going home.

Silver wings turned gold

from the days setting sun.

Firing homeward

through low pressure zones,

dancing

with each sweep of wings.

Slipstreaming

in perfect northern flight.

How the nights must linger on

for sleepy honkers and creaking jet liners.
