Little Bird

A loud thump startles me,

and I walk outside and find a small gray bird with a yellow tail

stunned on the ground,

she’s mistaken the light in my window for the rising sun,

her eyes slowly blink as she turns to look at me,

I inch closer reaching out a finger to gently stroke her back,

her trusting eyes stare at my face,

as I whisper words of understanding~

how difficult it can be to fly, when you’ve hit a wall of resistance,

I leave to get water,

and when I return,

the little gray bird is gone~

I hope my words gave her the courage to try again.
