When I spread my wings

I feel the pull of freedom.

I spread them wide and trail

my shadow the way birds do.

Your hands are elegant thieves

and your tongue a web of lies.

In this desperate nest of chaos

When the veil falls apart and

the daylight slivers in  I can see

the slant of sky where you slipped in.

    1. Thank you Yassy, that makes me feel great about this little poem. It was inspired by a song by Mark Knopfler. I wrote this a few years ago and paired with his song “Bluebird”.
      Have a wonderful Day! ❤️🤗

    1. I wrote this several years ago is to a music video by Mark Knopfler. It features Hugh Jackman and is about betrayal and seeking revenge. Disturbing but an intriguing video. It is called Bluebird. . Thank you for the fine comment Mr. Cake.

      1. Disturbing can frequently be intriguing, though I guess it’s a matter of aesthetics. My pleasure, I was going to say my you are writing a lot in one day, but you wrote this before. Still you have a fine back catalogue.

          1. I actually have been writing poetry since I was eight years old. You would think by now I would be a lot better.
            You are a naturally gifted art and literature critic, there’s no window for that.


      1. An Art Gown of Silver Tongues.
        Wild! I suppose I could dry them out first!
        I’m so sick of non-creative paperwork. Well, I’m taking it all to the accountant on Wednesday! YAY! AND there are 2 massive new murals right by his office!!! Hmmm…. I’m off to check the forecast!

        1. Good luck with that. I hope you find something amazing on the way. Re silver tongued gowns ; a sprinkle of stardust ( or sprinkles whatever you have) would be be amazing! xoxoxo


  1. Bonjour Mon Amie,HEART
    Ce jour un petit bonheur passe chez toi

    Un petit bonheur c’est dès le réveil
    de pouvoir se lever et de pouvoir marcher
    C’est d’entendre le chant mélodieux des oiseaux
    qui expriment leur joie pour ce jour nouveau
    C’est de voir le soleil pointer à l’horizon
    dont les chauds rayons feront bientôt éclore les bourgeons
    Un petit bonheur c’est le rire d’un enfant
    qui nous transmet sa joie d’être là
    Un petit bonheur oui un petit bonheur
    C’est d’avoir un ami avec qui partager
    les joies et les soucis quelquefois rencontrés
    C’est aussi d’admirer un joli paysage
    et savoir apprécier le rythme des saisons
    Tous ces petits bonheurs qui croisent notre chemin
    il faut les attraper, savoir en profiter
    car en leur compagnie la vie est si jolie !
    un petit bonheur un petit bonheur pour toi pour toujours
    Amitié , belle journée ou soirée
    Bisous Bernard
