Swan Feather Poem by Kelly Vinal

Swan Feather

Rating: 5.0

Wounded swan, still beautiful –
Spreads wings she feels
Are broken –
Determined still to climb again
To clouds that call her home.

Broken bird, so painful so
To those she’s known
And those who’ve known
Her hopeful song – it soothes
The gentle rain.

A fallen dream, no destiny
It seems, but few know her resolve –
No hawk, no storm
No gravity
Will keep her on the ground.

A gusting wind, an answered prayer
Believing in herself again,
She circles to her clouds, she’s home –
A feather floats

To be this writer’s pen!

You put together a book of poetry and I will buy it. I wonder after your message what this may be about.
