March 1989

 

a pause

at midday

to look inside

 

seeing floodgates open

water rushes forth

enthusiastically

to soon become a torrent

 

and birds

they are only truly birds

when loosed from the earth

or a cage

to flit about the sky

to land at random points

 

so too my thoughts

like waters long held back

suddenly flowing free

as the dam is bust

like birds aflight

to land on random bits

where at last they may be seen
