I Sing A Weeping Song

Once, I flew meadows happy for the day. Then, darkness fell over me and sunbeams went away. Now, home is a cage. I sit and sing a weeping song stretching out my wings trying to soar away, daydreaming of freedom . . . a bird sweetly free over wild fields fair swaying in the breeze ________________________ July 15, 2020 Poetry/Haibun/I Sing A Weeping Song Copyright Protected, ID 29-1268-552-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for Haibun- Pick Your Theme sponsor, Line Gauthier Honorable Mention

Rico, I suppose the pet bred birds love their cages and family, but wild birds from meadows, fields and forests belong in the wild in my opinion, thanks for visiting _Constance
