Like A Bird Poem by Callie Carroll

Like A Bird

Rating: 4.9

I move through my day
dully from point to point,
Straight and efficient
Up the stairs and down, but
In my mind I'm a feathered creature
soaring outside my normal range.

Darting and cavorting in puddles
Spiraling like a creeper,
I undulate, I hover, and I glide.

I move through my day
dully from point to point,
but Posssibility brings hope
to my captive heart.

This is a good one Callie. It reminds me of the Leonard Cohen poem Bird on a Wire - 'like a bird on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir, I have tried in my way to be free...' Yours has the same feeling of struggling to get away from where you are.

I think this is so very true, for most of us have a 'public' face...but inside our heads and hearts...we're soaring about...looking for a worm or three? ? Good writing here, Miss Callie! !

I reckon I'd like the display you'd put on... you sound just like a bird of paradise.. you just got to the gyrate, migrate dance now..

I like the swiftness of this poem. So smooth and encouraging as well. Positive thoughts are good and provide some form of motivation to move forward. Keep on soaring and you will feel you inner strengh to empower yourself.

What a great theme and way to get through a day. I know I would like to fly as others would too. Because you have your outstanding imagination, you can do it anyway, until we are supplied with wings of our own. You captivated me Callista. 10 Karin Anderson
