A White Bird

A bird banks against the wind
Of an oncoming storm
The tops of its wings so white against
Charcoal clouds
That my camera finds no data there
A blank spot in the storm
A soaring hole thru the darkness
To let the light back in

by James A. Pearson, inspired by and written in Acholi Quarters, Uganda
