Feather on the Wind

less than 1 minute read

Buffeted by the winds
darting this way and that,
unpredictable, prone to
lover’s tendencies and nations
squabbles; to
life’s joys and riches and also its
harsh lessons; to
grim forests, every leaf and sharp bark
a wooden trap for the flyer
a sudden upward gust
clear air, clear world, blue peace
the expanse frees the mind to expand
for freedom is not restrictive, not a responsibility
but it is life
