Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)

As I waited for my husband to come from inside a store,

observed a baby bird which had fallen from its safe nest..

This came to me..

We neve know about death..

It takes young, old, all races, all sexes..

When it is one's time to go death visits..

                                              Upon concrete
                                     Downy feathers, weak feet
                                                 Death waits

    Sad tale - I remember seeing an injured bird near the N.Y. subway - I told the police about the poor animal - I doubt they did anything. Nice poem but I suggest changing the last word to "awaits".

    aww such a sad thing! Nature seems cruel sometimes. I have to watch for those things around here esp. for squirrels that get too careless. We've 12 cats prowling the yard between house and the barn. Great poem Sara. Made an impact

    you know i really hate it when i see a baby sparrow fall from the nest, so young, never got a chance at life. a very good poem will put it in my favorites. sorry i have not read any of your stuff for a while hurt my back, still hurts, to sit very long and i have been doing that for some time, trying to catch up with my comments that goes back almost a month.

    Awww how sad. But well told! I enjoyed how you used the form for the poem quite well. Keep up the good work!

    oh, sara, I did one like this a long time ago, only it was about a quail. It's so sad, isn't it? I like how you did yours.

    Strong cinqku on the poor baby sparrow, Sara. Reminds me of a poem I wrote about a baby swallow....concrete was the scene as well.

    oh i hope it doesn't die...but i think it might. poor bird. a great cinqku. I can picture the bird now. p.s. my poem cardboard ceiling was purely fictional. thanks for commenting!
