Bird Poem for Mishal

This is a poem that I wrote for my best friend. I’ve been calling it the “Bird Poem”, since it was partially inspired by a painting of a bird:

Bird Poem for Mishal

Where spiders rest
on dew drops. Puddles
reflecting images
of clouds and starlight. Birds
flutter past on feathers
stained like paint brushes.
A wind that blows
your hair to the side.
The feeling of sunlight
on my shoulder. An
echo of her
laughter in the rain.
This is where
God resides.
