Throwback Friday – Called Your Name – Eric (EDC Writing)

‘Called Your Name’ a slightly tweaked version of ‘Blink’ posted last year and published this year in ‘Shorts – a take on poetry’


Early morning walking
head a drift of memories
a robin at my feet
took to the air
another came

In flight they kissed
suspended for a moment
beak to beak
their hearts as one
wings beat so fast
They became a blur
what took seconds
seemed eternal

They alighted on a branch
staring at and through me
I called your name
their beaks as lips
touched again

They held me
in their spell
as you
I felt you close
so near I blinked
they disappeared
I blinked again
and saw you


EDC, an Englishman, a scientist, retired fellow, now writing, as is, whatever comes into his head. Can be found blogging poetry, lines and other things as ‘EDC Writing -Believing Sight Unseen’ at – a collection ‘Shorts – a take on poetry’ published by Potter’s Grove Press in May 2020.
