Prayer Bird

(Poem by Wendy Howe )

On cold, silver days
when the sky matches the tea service
of a woman's house, he appears
crowning the windowsill. His head
and body glisten
with the sea's morning chill, a bird

who carries the shiver
of peace in his wings
and bids it to tremble
in a daughter's hand
as she looks out, pointing homeward.

There, the sun burns quickly, a match flame
searing the skyline and leaving
dusk to smolder
over trees and minarets, tent poles
and the chant of veiled women
as they mourn, weaving rugs that warm
the scarred feet of Palestine.
