Imagine by Joan McNerney

Imagine

Imagine to be a bird
slicing  air with wings.

Up up over that horizon
soaring through clouds
away from solemn earth.

Shining, shimmering 
far above this sphere
into  clear blue light.

Cutting through sky
gliding over oceans
eyes open all seeing.

Awake all day all night
brushing rushing
against the four winds.

Imagine to be a bird.


Joan McNerney’s poetry has been included in numerous literary magazines such as Seven Circle Press, Dinner with the Muse, Moonlight Dreamers of Yellow Haze, Blueline, and Halcyon Days.  Three Bright Hills Press Anthologies, several Poppy Road Review Journals, and numerous Kind of A Hurricane Press Publications have accepted her work.  Her latest title is Having Lunch with the Sky and she has four Best of the Net nominations.

  2. Another wonderful poem by a wonderful person and poet, Joan McNerney who also was published in both my poetry anthologies, Moonlight Dreamers of Yellow Haze/Dandelion in a Vase of Roses. I might also add I did one of her poems on YouTube, her poem, my voice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrcqAEP5X0Y
