emerging from the night
heart racing like the beat
of wings trapped in this
shell of fears I hover

flowers open to the light
how I fly into the dawn
seeking dew and sweet
sun like mother’s kisses

caressing hair and there
a feather’s gentleness
fills the air with song
awakens dreams

spring beckons me
nectar on my tongue
I greet today knowing
night must come

but in that dark cage
I will remember now
how freedom tastes
how high the sky
