An Awesome Unseen Hand
Poetry By John Cannon

A thousand blackbirds
descend
at once,
 
Every tree
laden
with ornaments of jet;
 
Cacophony
jars and grinds
your nerves,
 
Rampant chaos
it seems,
and yet ―
 
Somehow
through all the din
a signal is sent
 
And then,
as one
they all lift up
 
And swoop away
together
in perfect choreography
 
As if guided
by an awesome unseen hand.
