Water's Rise

Water's Rise

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver
"

Inspired by the included photo...

"


I have always wanted to be a bird...

Tell me 
soft herons
if I may call you such 
what sights you have seen
on your way to that lake
I wonder if monsoon rain
beat heavily upon your broad wings
or the sun scorched your glides 
as you soared toward fresh water
tell me
in your own unique way
how the sunrise glows in India
from here it seems to sear
I miss the home of my soul
have you seen the one who often walks 
where you choose to land and hunt
the one who cherishes the beauty of nature
in sunshine or storm
tell me
soft herons
what sights you have seen
in the land of my dreams
I have always wanted to be a bird
perhaps more so now than ever before
to take flight and never return
to forever dwell 
where the sky seems to burn

LOVE-LOVE-LOVE!!! This is gracefully stated & beautifully conceived. I love the longing thru-out, as if dripping from your words, wanting to be a bird. The observations are carefully chosen to show a side of this bird life that's nicely uncommon. I've been wanting to write as if a frog lately & your poem helps me formulate my ideas on this! *smile*

Thank you very much Josie :)
We always talk about walking in others shoes... but getting a perspective from a birds view would be fascinating.

Such a nice poem! India is a great country with the beauty, can't be imagined. Nicely written! It's lucky to be a bird, a traveller and an explorer, hah! A dream.
