Banners Above the Bluff - By Dan'l MclLhenny

Banners Above the Bluff 

B: Dan’l McILhenny 

Pampas grass flags 

Stand erect 

Ruffled by the breeze 

Appearing as guardian figures 

Clumped together waiting 

Ready - to take their 

Battle stations 

Banners above the bluff 

From this vantage point 

Not a word is sounded 

Although closer proximity 

May reveal frawn voices 

Singing wind messages 

Such language unfamiliar 

To mere human ears 

Banners above the bluff 

Down along the beach 

An excited dog barks 

Out on a bayside run 

At play with owner near 

By active sand and surf 

Commingling au naturel 

Unlulled ebb and flow beneath 

Banners above the bluff
