Fluttering

My heart is cursed with sentient antennae,
all feathers, alert to waves so trifling
the very cosmos barely shudders at their rippling,
so finely tuned
the slightest waft of disenchantment
registers with thunderous resonance
across my spirit.
Oh for the leathern hide of vast gray giants,
careless Titans roaming the savannah,
sunbaked, heedless of any disturbance
less tumultuous than the earth being split asunder,
lightning-sparked infernos
or the killing machines of men.
Alas, my heart is wingèd,
soft and fragile,
dusted iridescent,
shy of capture,
damned antennae
quivering –
silent, wired and restless –
at every signal,
be it drops of nectar sweet
or whispered warning.
Somewhere a silver net of softest silk
awaits me.
Will this heart discern its shining welcome
or retreat,
affrighted, from the haven offered?
