downy



shhhh

solitary and strange

these days i feel my freedom
within my arms
the stirring of wings
calamus rooting
deep to the marrow
like fear
and her sister
promise

the feather weighs
upon me
down
down
down
giving the talent
to soar
and to crash
like every silver lining
a cloud
every thorny stem
a rose...

give me the courage for freedom
and the appreciation of roots
let me live
half bird
half human
full force


And You too...
growing wings

as a woman
can be frightening
for she
and her flock

beautiful words. i believe the most meaningful experiences in life are connected with a certain fear that we must overcome.

spread your wings and fly.
