Anticipating Life – a poem by Emalisa Rose

Anticipating life


She's claiming her spot
on the sycamore as I watch
from the window view.

She waits for the winds
to reverse, then circling south
she carries a gathering back with her

red
curled
triangular

She weaves the loose leaves along
with the twigs and the pine needles
with both skill and with artistry, as

She's knitting a nest for the baby birds.

When not writing poetry, Emalisa Rose enjoys crafting and birding. She volunteers in animal rescue, helping to tend to a cat colony in the neighborhood. She lives by a beach town, which provides much of the inspiration for her art. Her latest collection of poetry is “On the whims of the crosscurrents,” published by Red Wolf Editions.
