Discovering strange and beautiful lands
You, my wild bird soar high up in the sky
Scanning the vastness of the continents
As you hunt for your meat

And when you ache and tire
You take a rest on a branch in a tree
Sometimes dropping to the ground 
To bath in the coolness of the river
With your wings flapping
As the dirt and pain washes away

Occasionally you smile to the other birds
The day birds
The night birds
The happy birds
The sad birds
Taking them all in
They teach you about themselves
And you teach them about your ways

When all the lessons are done
You fly up into the sky
Searching out another day
You, my wild bird

I love that one!
Pity that a wild bird can never be held in a cage. We would like to have it with us, look at it daily and spoil it. But it would die...

I agree with ...Shaw, this is poetry! My favorite part:

"Taking them all in
They teach you about themselves
And you teach them about your ways"

...It rings so true. Thanks--Emilie

This is so true very true!!

I love to watch those wilde birds!!

As a matter of fact I watch them I wait by the gates to open at the Lookout Beach in Plettenberg Bay...They are so cheaky...they answer me when I am talking to them or calling them...and there are two seagulls that follows me to a certian parking...and I feed them daily too...I even took Photo's doing it..I will put them up at AD as soon as they are ready!!

I can do bird watching for hours...that is real bird watching ..I know your poem means something more..

I enjoyed reading this..
I left you a note on mine okay!!

Love Tinka
