I Saw a Bird

I Saw a Bird

I saw a bird flying in the cool blue above

A sparrow it was, but it soared like an eagle

On wings of love

The bird spiralled in the wind

It was going through a transition

Then it lost its wings and fell

The bird plummeted to Earth

It landed on its wing

Crippled, it dragged its wing in the dust

Then the bird stopped moving

And slipped slowly into death

Daylight had changed to dusk, love had come and gone.
