My Travelling Bird

My Travelling Bird

A Poem by khalid

she is travelling..





My always-travelling bird

Don't you feel how much you are missed?

You never think of having some little rest?

I am dying for you landing on my wrist

So, i can get you close to my empty chest

Empty since you took my heart and left.


I miss to feel your beak, eating from my palms

I miss the feeling of your feathers on my hands

I miss to feel you between my hands

I miss your warmth.

I want to get lost between your wings


Im always looking high to the sky

Because i know, you always fly..

But i hope one day, you'd pass by..

And look down to where i lie.

I had mixed feelings reading this one. I do like the story however. I enjoyed your words.

A bird, no matter where it goes and no matter the season, it always goes back where the home is. Good metaphor.

This is beautifully written. It perfectly portrays the feeling one gets when a loved one is gone for a long period of time and/or lost forever. I love this poem of yours. Great writing, keep it up!

I had to read this poem twice to really absorb the yearning in your words. You reminded me of the beauty of soaring above, and the imagination of having wings to trasnfer me from this reality to another. I hope your bird comes back. Thank you for this refreshing story. Keep writing.

sounds like she always returns in the end. very lovely imagery. evokes much emotion and longing of the holder for the bird who flies high. at least it is loved for what it is and always has a refuge when it seeks it. great job. your poetry never disappoints. you have a faithful muse.

As I have understood, the hawk is used as a symbol to someone you are close with. This is a beautiful piece. A simple concept than can be conceived by the mind with many different meanings. Very interesting.
Thanks for sharing. :)
