birds of a feather ...

like an unhatched egg
cradled in the nest
'neath mother's wing
i've been incubating, sound & safe
my thoughts and hopes and dreams multiplying
like cells dividing, growing
safe within my shell

alas ...
new feathers, new wings
take me aloft
carry me away
in search of
new places
as yet unseen
both far and near

but, bring me back
to the nest
and land me softly
within the cradle
of familiar faces and loving arms
neglected, tho never forgotten
during my time of evolution

i'm here ...
i'm perched
on the edge of my life
a fledgeling
i'm a New Bird
with wings stretched wide
this will be
a new
first flight

and i dream
as i take to the air
you'll spread yours too
just along side
tip to tip
in perfect formation
aloft & free
we'll share the view
from way up here ...

birds of a feather ~

  7. Hey Laurie! (it's sarahraisel from flickr - I traded that painting for some jewelry of yours a year ago or so). Just found this via flickr and am so stoked to see you've started a blog! Love the title (so similar to mine! guess great minds think alike, eh?)! Have you done anything yet with those shells and teeth I sent? Love the way your work is progressing.. Cheers!
