A baby parrot made my day today
bright flash of green and red
calling my attention.
We chilled for a while
he posed for a photo
Then flew off on his way.
An escapee I suppose
Now free to fly!
It made me smile.
‘Imagine having the gift of flight
and not being free to fly?’
I decided today
I need not return to the cage-
the one I built for rainy days
The one that keeps out the sunshine;
And the rain. And the clouds. And the rainbows.
They tell you you’re playing it safe,
when really you’re living in fear.
They say ‘hey bird, show us you can fly!’
So, you step out of the cage and flutter to one side of the room
They’re hardly impressed, but satisfied more or less
They clap anyway. Happy to see a bird.
But…. you can never truly soar in a room like that.
And my if they could only see!
My, if I could only feel the true taste of freedom and the wind upon my face
Let it consume me and take me beyond the sand dunes and out into the wilderness
But there I went,
returned to the cage before it was out of my sight.
Well, if a baby parrot can do it, so can I.
So not anymore.
It is time.
