Kshanti

I wanted to share this poem by Wendy Stern from her posthumous collection, Kshanti Poems, courtesy of www.PoetrySpace.co.uk

Trapped on the inside

Life came to me today,
Through my window,
All feathers and passion,
With more colour, intensity, swiftness and determination
Than perhaps I’ve ever known before.
It perched, finally,
Trapped on the inside for once,
And it looked at me.
I spoke to it, calming it,
And then I set it free.
Life came to me today,
Trapped on the inside for once.
I set it free…
