Locked in the soft shell
of childhood
the sun freckles into them
the energy of trees and grass.
On the roof
with a brown finch
and a crust of bread
concentrating to be still
they cock their eyes
at each other
not telling their joy.

The bird accepts the feast,
pieces it
then winks a wing
before flight.

Pity the shell hardens yes?
Love this Martie, really I do, once again you have captured my senses. K

I love poetry that uses birds metaphorically - they're just such wonderful creatures with personalities all their own - Nice job here...
