Sky-flutter

I was too busy to ponder this month’s Visual Verse prompt. Just looked at it now and this one popped out instantly. Life’s like that.

Sky flutters
blinks
to get rid of the smut?

Birds flutter
never smutty
bright as planets
strung lights

we clutter
engine-stutter
swaying among the effortless wings
hollow-boned grace

spluttering
our machine-stinks
sky blinks.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
