The Caged Bird

The Caged Bird ~ Photo by Patrice

The caged bird flies
Deep into brilliant
Blue, blue skies.

The caged bird cries
Songs of lilting love
Her sweet voice sings
Of beauty, freedom
All things.

The caged bird dies
In the midst of bars holding
Holding her in.

No soaring in blue skies
Nor lilting love songs sung
For this was only a dream
Dreamt in
A dark night long.

Around And Around We Go

Bull Riding ~ photo by Patrice

Around and around we go
On the so called life
Merry-go-round  we go.

Sometimes it slows down
Other times it races thru strife
Sometimes it dies and all lies still
On a merry-go-round  we go.

We hold no controls we only hang on
And ride the steed we’ve been given
On a around and around
Merry-go-round we go.
