Lighter than air

The magpies in

my garden love

a windy day –

it takes them

up up and back,

turns their games

into three dimensional

chess, makes them

sing with happiness

when they land

on the gate, a

difficult landing, in

the wind, performed


But I can’t fly

and I hate wind.

Still, I am happy

for them.
