Afterlife

The marshes have filled themselves

with wetness and bird song

since they were left alone.

The Basran reed warbler breeds

deep in Mesopotamian banks,

the original garden of Eden.

Each dusk, birds with dark eyestripes

flash amber shadows low

over lakes and gleaming mud.

So many species are flourishing,

the African darter, the sacred ibis –

one day women in libraries, flocks of singing girls.
