Invisible Enemy

Spinster sparrow

Swings around the tree

Tall and spindly

Swaying on a spring breeze

Eyes flicker like rivers

Sparkling in the sun

Patients shiver

As nature’s work

Comes undone


Blue glow engulfs the room

As spirits leave their shells far too soon


Police patrol with a glare

As the invisible enemy dances around us

Freely in the air.
