The Lonely Birds

June 3, 2017

They were just two lonely birds

When he took to the skies

Built his nest

Far away from her


She preened her feathers

Sang songs of melancholy

By the fountain of youth


Illusions floated

On the water

Amid the endlessly moving ripples

Dwelling within animated atoms and molecules


Behold the fountain

When nightfall covered the sky


Wide-eyed observed

The moon’s exposed face

Shining her brilliance

On veiled illusions


She floated on her surface

Wings extended

Bathing with speckled light


Caressing feathers

Brushed away

The creases that formed


The wind

Disturbed and altered

What her eyes perceived

As truth


The moon

Face etched in creases

Placed there by time



Great storyteller

Imprinting experience

Into creases and folds


She saw

The moon’s face

As it was

Beseeched the wind

To stop puffing

So she could marvel

At history



They were just two lonely birds

When he took to the skies

Built his nest

Far away from her


She sits

Within a pocket

Of time

Waiting just inside

Lurks also her fear


So she sings

Her songs

Of melancholy

And time

Faithfully recalls

Her waiting


She looks at her reflection

Inside the moon’s face


New creases

And folds


Still a lonely bird

She takes to the sky

Finds a place

To build a nest


At night

She sings with the moon

In the morning

She rises with purpose

She has newly found songs to sing
