One Summer

We spoke in sparrow
and chickadee,
too-whit chirree,
praising in the tongue of crumbs
the God of small things.



Drafty poem for the wonderful Kerry O’Connor’s mini poetry challenge on Real Toads.  I say drafty because I worry that the phrase of the ‘God of small things’ snitches the title of a wonderful novel by Arundhati Roy.  I am hoping that it is something of generic description, but not sure that’s accurate.  No copyright infringement intended.  Drawing is mine. 

Ps- I have changed the title since first posting.
