After spending a good part of your life learning how
To fly, float and run
in the deep blue ocean
To fly into the sky and dip your beaks in the clouds
To navigate the cooler temperature and talk the winds to your side
To come down the walk
And bite an angle worm into halves
To drink the dew
from the green grass
To hop sideways in the field
to let a beetle pass
To stick fast to the low clouds
and notate the dawn
To listen to the beat
of slow wings across the sea
To soar not too high
when the sky is fair
To soar above the mountain tops
lest, the storm press thee back
To drink long sips of water
by the shore of a great lake
After taking the pain to collect twigs
to weave your warm nest on the tallest branch of a mulberry tree
Then someone begins to preach about the safety of a cage to you.
Was he sent from God?
isn’t it strange to you?
which word can you tell me
that will make me forget
the roads of the world and never return.
What do you think?
