Bird, Holes In Wings

Written for dVerse poets and Grace’s challenge to use the “loop” poetry form.  Of the multiple variations of the form, I chose the simplest—click the link above to learn more about “loop”, and join in.

Bird has holes in wings

Wings which never fly

Fly beyond her perch

Perch where she stays safe

Safe from things unseen

Unseen enemies

Enemies within

Within tender heart

Heart that yet flies free
