The One Time I Wished to be SomethingThe one time I wished to be something
I had wished to be a bird
Just so I can fly away
Of course, it is often absurd to wish for something like that
But, when birds, want to escape, they take to the sky
If only, I could be amongst the songbirds
If I were a songbird, I would be free from this cage
If I were a songbird, my voice wouldn't be silenced
If I were a songbird, I could fly away
The one time I wished for to be something, I wished to be a bird
Once, I found a lily
I wondered where it came from
I was wandering the house that quiet afternoon
When I had found the lily
Odd, why would there be a lily in the hallway?
I do remember someone telling me that it was the favorite flower of someone beloved
She told me it was the favorite flower of her mother
She said it was the flower that she had grown in her garden
Perhaps, her mother's protective and caring force extends beyond her daughters
Odd, it seems I have only encountered presence now
Oh, well, she is no malicious spirit, so she can stay, until satisfied
I know she waiting for something
It's of her own free will that she doesn't cross over
I say, let her stay, her life was not finished
As she lingers. I welcome this entity called, Mommy
Hello, Mrs. Rabbitwright, there you are
And I thank you for the lily
Let the Sparrows InI.
Blackbirds rest on the power lines,
their silhouettes form the notation
to a dawn song set on the sheet music
of telephone poles contrasted by the sun.
Curled leaves are land mines littered
on the lawn where imprints of twigs
and a nurturing robin's tracks collect.
Branchlets and leaflets stem from
porch step railings and mailboxes;
the numbers read odd on the east,
even on the west side of the asphalt:
The engraved letters on
the siding reads, "Davis."
This house is home to family
so let the sparrows in.
with its branching hallways
furniture rooted to the floor
family, friends, the occasional
out from home.
Let the sparrows in; let
Let the door's
loosen—let the door stand ajar
be let open
the night owls and
let the doves
in pairs in the iridescent
Let the sparrows in.
