  1. As I flutter from tree to tree,
    i am amazed at the sights I see,
    for as tattered as they may be,
    these wings still carry me free.

    As I savor the nectar so sweet,
    I rejoice with every beat,
    for as tarnished as they may be,
    these wings still carry me free.

    As the morning light, welcomes me,
    I thank the powers above that be,
    for letting me flutter unfettered and free
    and for one more day, letting me, be me.

    The cadence and syllable count might not be perfect, but neither are those wings … yet they fly, unfettered and free.

    Thanks for the inspiration <3

    1. Omg…you really have that precious mind! Not everyone can do that! I used to write poems years back, I stopped and somehow lost it. I used to know when you try to pull out those words inspired by a photo. This is a very nice poem and I’m so happy you bring that gift on my post! Thank you, I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I’m glad you like it and it is you I should be thanking for the beautiful imagery.

        My creative side had been placed in limbo for a long time … I used to guard against it as it makes me feel as though I am untethered and out of control. But now, it has seen a resurrection of sorts and I am not about to return it to it’s grave any time soon.
