I wrote this with Hoot in mind...


On Broken Wing

On broken wing the dove still flies
though not to foreign lands,
she canít venture quite as far,
somehow she understands.

She sits upon a windowsill,
or on a lone high wire,
senses something missing
like some internal fire.

Although it may be innate
this  drive to become a pair,
with broken wing and lost heart
she still does not despair.

For somewhere out there,
her perfect mate does call,
on fluttering wings he soars
just as autumn starts to fall.

Oh Corinne...this is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for writing this with me in mind. To think that I inspired this in any way makes me feel really good. What a wonderful poem

I agree, it's a lovely poem. Applause to you!

I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

Corinne~
Our little hoot is befriended
therefore her broken wing
will be mended.

How thoughtful and caring for
thinking of her.  She's a little
bird worth caring about.

Hoot won't be a hurtin' owl for long - she's much too wise.... Owl bet she's back aloft in the blink of an eye...

Nice work, Corinne...

Lovely, lovely, lovely - a poem of flight indeed... (and fittingly inspired by our Hoot)

May time will heal this broken wing
May in time the dove will sing
A song of love and full of passion
As to write such poem is a beautiful possession
Loved it

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
