a song bird fate

oh you pretty song bird
they say if you are ever to spread your wings
the time is now
fly away from past mistakes of immaturity
and into the waterfall for a new source
coming upon angelic grace
if a storm is what takes you there
then take that chance to be
keeping fresh continuity
a recipe of savory chords

wrapped so neatly in perfect splendor
a heart inside a glass globe
like satin spinnings woven true
spotted only from a bird's eye view

saintly pulses bouncing along miles
carefully placed beneath your feathers
quickening passion past the sparks
to light your perches in every dark
corner
it will spring there
even after you're gone
victorious music
drowning pendulums
of dust
and dismay
be on your way now
for lil' song birds mustn't stay...too long

A lovely metaphor of moving on. Love your poetry..................................................

What a creative metaphor for the need to keep moving to stay fresh and growing throughout life. There is a transcendant message here to those who can discern it.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
