|Effective metaphors that are used to empower the reader (and the writer). I was telling myself that life beyond our own boundaries is what everyone deserves to find.

|Your words are powerful and so fit the bird I have been watching for months at the store. So shy and angry he was taken from his mother not yet weened. Would not move from one perch. Then he finds "friends" the girls that work there love him and have brought out his playfulness. He shows off for me now but every now and then I see him staring at the outside as the pet shop door opens, how I would love to set him free.

|From mind of a bird! I heard chirps as I entered my garage today. Babies in my tree out front were calling for food. They will live longer than me if they survive their youth.

|I Love This Pic!
Your Words are a Powerhouse of Emotions & Inner Truths
I Love This Part: "Raucous bird. You prattle in the shrieking tones of a fledgling to a sky that is foreign to you, bitter at the changing clouds. Yet you boast of your wisdom and preen in your cleverness." This is Fantastic! I have known this in myself (unknowingly at the time) but also have been witness to know someone "preening in their cleverness"
Powerhouse I tell you!!

|I love this your summation right up my alley,dare to be free! A beautifuly worded poem Lin!
|Reviewed by Elizabeth Russo
|Too many are in such fear of what lies beyond the door that they fail to realize it has been unlocked all the time and all they need do is push it open to experience freedom. Great message, Lin. Hugs, Elizabeth|
|Reviewed by Gianetta Ellis
|Freedom comes with vulnerability; freedom comes with a taste of the unknown; freedom comes with fear of failure; freedom comes with responsibility. Only a few dare to live free, to embrace and maneuver through all that lies beyond the comfort zone - that restricting, suffocating comfort zone...|
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|This stunning analogy is all too real and I could feel the different emotions run through my own mind and heart as I wondered how many of us stay in our gilded cages rather than risk the unknown.
|Reviewed by Carol Grace
|I like it. You look beyond the surface and see what lies beneath. I particularly like the line beginning "Raucous bird."|

At least, Linda, that's how I read this lovely poem.

|To me, this poem can be interpreted on much more than a single level. It gives me pause for reflection. Thank you, Linda. Love and best wishes,

Such power in your words and inspiration and challenge, too, this is a declaration of war on timidity, self-imposed "fetters" and the prattle of the trapped and desperate. Excellent!
