Feather treasure

light as air

once you graced a proud pheasant’s tail,

resplendent in shades

of dun and white,

black stripes,

slender ink marks

along the thin quill

within.

she found you

discarded in flight

upon the tree line,

and claimed you,

a feather to join the treasure

she found on

other woodland walks,

conkers, leaves and twigs

piled haphazardly

on her shelf.
