Starlings’ Ballet

(From the Day 11 November Poem A Day Chapbook Challenge promt, to write an “animal” poem.)

Together they dance
across the sky.
Thousands, as one…
Twisting…
Twirling…
An aerial waltz,
spinning to make
formations,
living clouds on feathered wing.
Their murmuration
a thing of wonder.
I know not why
or how
but they are
Nature’s synchronized swimmers
of the air.
