A nest of one’s own

What a sad bird I present

Lacking plumage, I resent

The birds who flutter out front.


Strutting divas in scarlet gowns

and black-capped little clowns

Perform intricate aerial stunts.




They float on a breeze

And go where they please

Catching the wind they soar so high.


To fly free and unfettered

Independent and untethered

I long to be one with the sky.


Day and night,  fair and foul

Through winter’s  blustery howl

I’d live or die by the weather.




Better, I suppose

My cozy inside repose

Than outside freezing my feathers.

    1. Thank you! I was in a silly mood, tho I have to admit if I had a super power it would be to fly. Thank you for being a supporter of my writing and for your friendship. Have a great day!
