Random Poem:

Red Bird
trailseekr

A lone bird flew into my yard with its breast of red
 1
And left a seed in what was to begin next year’s bed
 2
 
 
The winds blew and I watched the leaves fall
 3
As I asked myself if there was someone I should call
 4
 
 
The days grew shorter and the chill turned colder
 5
My mind still blank, I felt nothing but older
 6
 
 
The snow fall this year was without compare
 7
Daily I wondered how much more I could bear
 8
 
 
The silence in my house is almost deafening
 9
Everything’s fine we say but we’re just pretending
 10
 
 
The temperature’s warming and it’s lifting my spirit
 11
I notice my red bird so I go out to hear it
 12
 
 
She’s asking me who I need to talk to
 13
Again my mind goes blank; there’s no one to run to
 14
 
 
I must find my friend within myself
 15
Or spend my life sitting on the shelf
 16
 
 
As I turn to tell her, I find she’s flown
 17
Leaving me once again feeling alone
 18
 
 
Rays of sunlight filter through the clouds
 19
As a tear of loneliness falls to the ground
 20
 
 
When I notice the single wildflower stretching toward the sky
 21
I remember You saying, “no matter what time, no matter why”
 22
