If Love is a Birdcage

If love is a birdcage, I shall sing With silver bars in harmony We keep content these tiny wings As grace balanced so artfully With silver bars in harmony We gather mirrors of the sky As grace balanced so artfully By oval patterns, we still fly We gather mirrors of the sky So close, our dome's heavenly blue By oval patterns, we still fly Our feathered universe of two So close, our dome's heavenly blue We keep content these tiny wings Our feathered universe of two If love is a birdcage, I shall sing. 6/15/21

Ah, dear Michelle, you triumphant, joyous and talented pen captures my heart and imagination with this extraordinary pantoum. Metaphorically and emotionally beautiful, I soar on the aria you sing and revel in the contentment of tiny wings. A masterwork and a fav! Warmest wishes, my sweet friend.. ~Susan

Thank you, I was thinking a birdcage can be cozy and intimate, so I went in that direction, appreciate your comment!

What a beautiful poem built on the picture of the birds that you have written. This is a piece of art, a word sculpture with exquisite shading and a beautiful message. Michelle, it's always a pleasure to read your poetry, and I'm looking forward to reading more. Blessings and best regards.
