Food for Thought-Birds of Caution

Richard's Food for Thought


Birds of Caution

by Richard Bryant

Birds of caution
Never fly
Dreams of motion
Make them sigh

Content to watch
From their place
While others seek
Open space

From Earthen jails
Their only homes
Still their voices sail
Above and alone

Past the trees
Over the hedge
Down the street
To my window ledge

It doesn’t matter
I can listen
To flying chatter
They’ve done their mission

The song has found me
And I don’t care
If the bird flew in air.
