Rooster Skull (Draw a Bird Day)

rooster skull drawing 2

What creates
this form, measured
perfectly
and complete,
a structure to hold a mask
adorned with feathers?

The outline
sits naked, revised,
unconcealed,
redirected
to death.  Not malevolence–
the shadow of time.

Well, we couldn’t miss draw-a-bird-day, could we?  Continuing with the Year of the Rooster, two views of a rooster skull.

I also didn’t want to miss National Poetry Month; last year I managed to post a poem every day, but obviously I won’t be doing that in 2017.  I have an idea for a series involving dots and magnetic poetry, so I’ll start that on Monday (I hope).  And next week I’ll try to catch up on what everyone has been up to.  Happy weekend! and happy Draw-A-Bird-Day!
