Explore Life a #poetryport gift for every child never too afraid to fly #writingcommunity #literacies

With each door
creak
three birds
burst
from small pines framing
broken stairs greeting our house
startled steps on
crumbling
concrete
as they take to the sky


Now there is
one

matted feathers
tossed like first
snow
on our muddy green
lawn
missing winters
frozen nuzzle

Each spring,
in those same shrubs
we watch  nests grow
witnesses to watch
every egg die

I would hate to explore
life as these birds
but then again
they get to fly.
