Life Denied

It's really an original blog and nice idea. I have to take some time going through each corner of it.

I am glad to stop by (coming through catvibe blog).

Forsaken only just
this temptation to reach in
and touch the warmth

song in the branches
song in the leaves

this is my hand
holding back
and the dream of the future
hatching. Give me
please a glimpse

song in the sky
wings coming in
forsaken only just
for one moment

This one moment
I could have been a part
I, too, could have hatched
the dream and lived in flight
and have had a song in my heart
just for one moment.

(poem by Therese L. Broderick of Albany, NY, USA)


Three white eggs in a capsule
of intertwined twigs
are about to migrate northeast
out of our view, away from
that black & white mass
(tree? bush? thicket? marsh?)
crowding the other three corners
but left out-of-focus--
a photo to show us how birds
can fly before they're born.

A subtle sway like mother's arms,
a tight and tender grasp
like father's arms;
these branches contain
the love of both, even
a lullaby can be heard
when spring winds dance
with luminous leaves
and soft coral blossoms.
Triplets sit, oblivious,
encased in brown speckled shells,
carefully placed among
woven twigs and silken feathers.
Today they will remain, shielded,
high above a thawed ground and
far below a warming sky...
Today they will remain.
