Fallen Sparrow

Fallen Sparrow

I’m hanging by a limb
And clawing for its branches
Scratching me with thorns
Of blood-stained sorrow
Black bird sits mocking me
For all I want to see
Is a glimmer of your face
Inside this hollow
And I cry out in pain
As I attempt in vain
To reach beyond today
Until tomorrow
For that lemon yellow sky
And one look into your eyes
A balm to heal this hapless
Fallen sparrow

  1. Kay I really love your style…. Your depth of longing streams through this piece as almost 3-D, so tangible, so real that the reader can just reach out and touch it! Lovely piece dear….
