Songbird Sing

25 Aug

by Crystal L. Howe

Soaring high above the clouds

Of chaos in my mind,

I know there is a song to sing

With words I cannot find.

 

I hunt and peck and try in vain

To force the music out

And feel the pangs of harsh regret

That feed the fire of doubt.

 

The time has come to let it go

And set the songbird free!

For only when the spirit soars

Can any songbird sing!

 

I learn to find the hidden nest

Of peace within my mind,

Where love consoles and lifts me over

All the thoughts that bind.

 

There are no words to look for here,

No melody to sing;

The music of this sacred place

The Spirit plays within.

 

So, take the time to let it go

And set the songbird free!

For only when the spirit soars

Can you, the songbird, sing!
