the city’s square
incoming starlings darken
the darkening sky

I saw a flock today! Great poem.

A brillant afternath. Dark birds darken the darkening sky even more. The black birds will go to their place to sleep. A very pointed image. I admire how you are able to place nuances of darkness.

I hope my English was not too bad.

Best wishes
Rudi

"...darken the darkening sky" - what an awesome image Frank. We get huge flocks of them here too flitting from tree to tree and to the ground.

the repetition of darken and 'ing' binds this poem together excellently, like starlings in a flock. A good observation of city life
