Clipped Wings

May 28th, 2014

Birds choose to land
limitation of flight

Soaring is their nature
Blue skies is their delight

Our limitation grounded
closing the door
to our hearts

Destroying the key
like
clipping the wings of a bird

A Creator Key

Take Hold

Limits Off

Turn

Unlock

Love    Freedom    Fly

Today I received the news of Maya Angelou's passing, so I am particuliarly moved by this poem, which references the themes of freedom, flight and joy that she loved so much. The title of Maya's first book, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, was a direct quote from the poet, Paul Laurence Dunbar

Come back for our final two days of poetry on Thursday and Friday! Stay in touch by joining our mailing list. I look forward to hearing from you!
