Poetry and personal blog – Spilling my guts to strangers

They said

thus
it came
to be that
bird songs sung at dawn
were touted as unvarnished truth
yet birds are seekers
not knowers
just like
us

  6. Free as birds are our hearts and minds but our bodies play spoilsport 🙂 Seriously, I loved your poem and all the creative ways you use your words and have done in the past 29 days. Amazing.
