Giving up hope, Bird accepts his perceived demise.


 

Have you heard the story of the bird

who flew into a house with many large windows?

 

A scary new environment

with clear views of open skies.

 

Confined, tight spaces are not part of his nature.

 

A person chases him and makes gestures

toward a door.

 

Bird trusts no one.

 

He can get out of this situation by himself!

 

He musters all his energy to force his way out.

 

Bird tries and tries to fly through the glass.

 

Each try brings more pain to his small body.

 

Panicked and out of breath Bird keeps trying.

 

Exhausted and hopeless

Bird collapses on the floor.

 

Giving up hope, Bird accepts his perceived demise.

 

The stranger holds the bird gently in her hand

taking him through the door outside.

 

She lays Bird gently in a small tree.

 

After a while

Bird flies in the open skies again.

 

Did you realize Bird’s exhaustion and subsequent letting go

was the key to his freedom?

 

What part of your life is similar to this bird’s story?

Indeed Shervin, you have captured the here and there world beautifully. It reminds me of, like us banging our heads against the wall. I rescued many a bird from my skylight, yes all good admonishment did not work, there a plenty of false window lights bidding us to the open skies, sometimes exhausted to weak to protest our will, helping hands of angels place us in the hands of freedom. Bless ya!
Jasmin Horst
