Darker, then sideways

Darker, then sideways
The blackbird takes up
the Last Post at twilight
Blasting the emerging treeline
Agreeing to dusk.

On Mondays, and also left
Only the brave know
the layout of mind-numbing fear
And question, and quest
Till there is a map.

Starling | bird | Britannica

Diagonally, then ash
Starlings compete in
casual forms attracting
Wives and attention of strangers
Not welcoming night.

One goes left, the other southerly
The landmarks irrelevant
to the route and the journey
Across the Turtle swimming in infinity
Complying with lost.

The red turns the sky turquoise
The trees extend many hands
Their sap ripening buds
For another explosion
Up,up and purple.
