Darkly Blackbird

A Poem by Frieda P
"

Digital Art ~Blackbird by *AnnaVRossen

"
Darkly blackbird never chirped
caged for all eternity
rhythm an elusive spirit
sun shined upon her soul
she had found the secret key
to escape gloomy shadows
opened her clouded eyes
discovered her vibrant voice
unlocked her tortured heart
in sweet love notes
flew upon the resplendent skies
singing in hopeful harmony

I love this line - "sun shined upon her soul, she had found the secret key" - such an uplifting line in a poem of beauty and inspiration. Your words, the graphic you chose and the music all together are perfect. This is one of those poems that just curls up in your heart and stays there. Lovely! :) Julie

Interesting concept Frieda, finding ones voice in an eternal cage allowing one some sense of peace.

beautiful imagery :)

she had found the secret key
to escape gloomy shadows
opened her clouded eyes
discovered her vibrant voice

So glad you enjoyed Barbara!
I think were all trapped and awaiting release in whatever we do. Sometimes it just takes a voice to be recognised and then open up we will.

Thank you Troy, much appreciated.
Hope for us all, huddled in darkness that may be of our own making: if we can catch the lovely light enough to see past the prison holding us, we may fly free and finally have the courage to sing, sing in the dead of night.
