A Murmuration of Starlings


Starlings swarming,
flashing inward, ballooning outward,
spiralling, spilling silver-bellied,
undulating darkness and luminescence,
rolling white underside upwards,
spooling, imploding, swallowing, exploding,
millioning out over the roofs, ribboning up,
each a light bulb switching, flicking,
flickering into unison, condensing into a score,
a billowing script,
a symphony inscribing itself across the heavens.
