The bird – my smallest poem so far

Sometimes words just enters, so I wrote the down immediately tonight.

The bird

I saw a bird carry both the strength and the tongue of a man,
cause its wings was stronger than his spine
And as it flew up there with the gifts it bore
It wept a tear of blood

    So beautiful. For some reason your poem reminds me of Oscar Wilde’s The Happy Prince.

    It may be small, but it is very powerful. The imagery and the last line will stick with me for the rest of the day.

    I too have experienced profound insights that just appeared in my mind. From what I have read these may be messages that will have more relevance in the future. Perhaps you have been given a glimpse into the future.

    “It wept a tear of blood.” brought tears to my eyes as well. I am now following your blog.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your poem on the bird is super cool.

    strength and speech of man – flight and tears; I love the semi-comparison between these, especially because I don’t typically associate tears (of blood) with words and this highlighted the communication in actions; pretty imagery (:

  18. thank you for looking at my blog, I liked your poem, sometimes less is more and some poems can get spoiled by overcrowding with unnecessary words, well done.
