Song of the Birdcage

Posted on


birdcage 01Welcome to my embossed birdcage

It’s engraved with scenery of ivory

Crafted with sweetness of memories

How can I hold it without sharing?

How can I keep a vow within?

So I wrote a song

I wrote a note

I wrote a Blogging post

Birds hear that!

But not wings near that!

birdcage 03 Welcome to my antique birdcage

No hanging price tags

No auction gag

Where do we find an old folks song?

When could we build a home sweet home?

Dancing in the wind

Dancing in the night

Dancing with cool red wine

Monkey hears that!

Monkey nears that!

birdcage 02Welcome to my empty birdcage

No more sorrowful songs

No more broken wings

No more contradicting feel of liberty

Where can I find him?

When can I fly with him?

He is not in the room

Not in Google map

Not on files piling up high desk

Can you see it?

Can you feel it?

That is our dream

Our birdie’s dream

    Our dreams must be free to wander and fly wherever they want. They do not always have to be big dreams. Sometimes dreams are pleasantly and gently swinging and swaying. Maybe they might like to return safely to the cage with the door left ajar with the liberty to come and go as they wish.

    Well done, may your dreams take flight as fancy and return when they are about to become reality.

        When your dreams become real rather than just imagination.
        You must have reality television shows there, we can’t be the only culture that is afflicted with them 😀

    Terrific verse! And how lucky can a house bird be to be in your cage. 🙂

      But the bird is make of cotton! 🙂

    Hopefully your neighbors will go away for the weekend and you’ll have wonderful peace
