The Bird Who Refused To Fly – Part 11/13

God came down Himself
To fetch her little soul
Her time on earth was up
Now’s time to pay the toll
He carried her away
Beyond the open skies
While her mother oblivious
Heavy tears in her eyes
She sat on God’s shoulders
As they sailed heavenwards
Where there was a special
Place for all the birds
When He opened up the gates
She was stunned to see
All sorts of birds therein
The young and old and free
Green parrots and blue pigeons
Black crows and vultures all
Yellow, red and pink and grey
The young and old and small
God said, “Enjoy yourself
Keep yourself well warm
I’ll be sending you back
Again in another form
Your work on earth is pending
There is still more to you
Prepare yourself again
A dying soul may need you”

  1. I’ve been away a lot so have read each part with a break between them. I think it works for me that way. It is so beautifully written that I need space between the parts to fully appreciate it. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Your series… this series… makes me so angry. I love it. It is written this way because then the message can be sent and received in it’s TRUE essence. It is necessary.
    I’m angry because its hit a wall in me. But I’m not really angry. Just waiting for the last 2 parts so I have the full message. I need the whole story to make sense of it. Lol. Ok I’m just frustrated.
    Thank you for sharing your gift. Your words. This story. This poem. Thank you.
