Oneness

A_robin_in_a_tree,_Swindon_-_geograph.org.uk_-_333092

Unique in his oneness the robin sings,
Taking no cues, no clues
Or fashionable trills and frills,
He pours his heart’s song
Into the ubiquitous wind,
Raising his throat,
Feathered fire,
To the one sun
In the single, world-arching sky.
The notes flow,
A stream, clear as a mountain source,
From this first and only and forever bird,
To his one and only love.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
