Even a Sparrow Soars

Even a sparrow soars
As its tiny soul
Climbs to great heights

Have you seen it?
Wings flat against the body
Brown bullet
Aerodynamically
Slicing through the air

Covering distances
In a twinkling
That we lumbering humans
Take minutes to travel

Surely it can reach heaven
More easily than we

This one is keeping me smiling. Love those little birds. Love to watch them all. You certainly showed them off very well in your excellent little poem.-Robert

Yes, I believe they can reach heaven more easily than we. Love this one, Corinne. We feed hundreds of birds every day in our backyard...mostly sparrows and starlings...once in awhile a bluejay. They're all the same to me...love 'em. Love, daver

This is why I love poetry so much. It allows us to soar with the birds and take journeys heretofore not imagined. Lovely work, Corinne! Carolyn
