Yellow bird looks out Beating heart longs to fly Sorrowful song soars

A very poignant haiku - but once that bird flaps it's wings and flies - it will sing a song so sweetly. Hope you're having a great weekend. Peace and happiness always, John

Perhaps a metaphor here. How the caged bird sings indeed. Wonderful write. Love, Shar

This is so lovely, but sad, poor bird... we can learn a lesson from him though... his heart is longing to be free, but still he sings. Beautiful writing. God bless and thanks for the kind comments on my haiku. :) Amy
