Of a Feather

The mockingbird explained
How not to be afraid.
The hawk
Soared high
When I asked for a sign.
The egret has shown
How to stand on my own.
And I never believed I could fly.

Til I died.

Taking Wing


She strokes feathers
Ten miles long.
Echos rebounding
From unseen walls
Of inner things,
Of open wings,
Til pain becomes
A dying thing.
Empty talons
Endless flight.
A wounded warrior
Redeemed by light.
