Shimmer

A wonderful

Shimmer

From

The leaves

Of trees

~○~

The way

Sunlight

Dances off

The breeze

~○~

You & me

We’d see

Such things

As dreams

~○~

Solace

In the

Beauty of

Everyday

Things

~○~

Birds we were

Together

Being in

That little

Cage

~○~

The door is

Always open

Yet we stay

~○~

Since

This is

Home

Either way

Bird song: revised

The birds they make reliable

Their relentless sounds

On these lives

That they have found

On a wire long

Over the hills, 

Cities renew,

Over the buildings,

Infinite views

The songs you wrote

This is the news

You wrote to tell

You were the muse

When the birds

Heard you sing them

The songs you wrote

Each vivid poem

They would sing

A mournful tune

They knew those songs

They weren’t for you

Questions on

The air abound

On a crest

Of waves resound

Where will you go

Without your sound

If your song it cannot leave

If your song you cannot leave

Will it reprise

Is there reprieve

Will we fly into the sky

To leave this place together

Taking with us all that silence 

Never and forever

🕊remember the birds🕊

when you smiled that small smile and squeezed my hand
i hoped more than anything
i hadn’t yet heard your last words

they were words of love
at least they were
worlds of love

remember the birds

Bird Song

The birds they make reliable

Their relentless sounds

On these lives

That they have found

On a wire long

Over the hills, 

Cities renew,

Over the buildings,

In finite views

The songs you wrote

This is the news

You wrote to tell

You were the muse

When the birds heard you singing them

The songs you wrote, Each vivid poem

They would sing a mournful tune

They knew those songs

They weren’t for you

Questions on the air they pound

On the crest of waves resound

Where will you go

Without your sound

If your song it cannot leave

If your song you cannot leave

Will it reprise

Is there reprieve

Will we fly into the sky

To leave this place together

Taking with us all that silence 

Never and forever
