Sparrows

 

The sparrows are out tonight

In the expanse of the sky

Dashing in different motions

Like flames in several portions

 

Every glide tells a narrative

Soaring a pungent account

From page 1 to page 101

Sparrows can tell diverse stories

 

They tell me something

They give me signs

Of life and of love

Of life and of love

    I was just watching the birds flying outside my window haha. I like this poem a lot. It’s making me search for them again with a different perspective.

    I like ‘every glide is a narrative’. Nice sense of flying too.

    I must be an ego maniac when someone elses poem makes me think of one of mine. It does though. I suppose there was a reason Ms. Dickenson could find endless inspiration without leaving the confines of her room. God bless a window and sparrows too! I enjoyed it.
