“Message” — C.Birde, 12/17

 

Never forget

to take the time

to read those notes

tucked amongst the trees,

carried along the air’s current,

laid

— gently, sweetly —

at your feet.

Thoughts & Wild Rabbits — A Poem

Wild Rabbit Fur.png

“Caught” — C.Birde, 11/17

 

 

The warmth and safety

of this moment,

this place,

are no defense,

nor the play of light splashed

against closed eyelids.

The unwelcome thoughts

leap —

small, wild rabbits

through the wire fence

of consciousness.

They should not fit,

become lodged half-way,

caught between life

and non-life.

Cut them free.

Gently,

gently

lift and release each one.

Swaddle it,

heart-to-heart.

Match that rapid pulse

and stroke

the dampened fur to warmth.

Speak tenderly into the

long, listening ears

of love and

love and

love.
