Birds

Birds

Spreading of the wings
Flying as far into freedom
Breaking the sound barrier with yellow beaks
Flopping orange claws, behind them.

Suddenly

Their pushed into a
Cage.
With a bowl full of bird seeds
And another with
Water
Sleeping in a bird house
Instead of a tree
Watching the humans with
Black, round eyes.
Awaiting their great escape
Into freedom,
Someday.
