Mag 184   Free as a Bird

A bird
In a tree,
I’d rest among leaves,
And I’d perch on swaying branches,
I’d take flight and seize my chances,
Wheel and swoop and dive -
Life unbound -
And thrive


  1. I love it and I want to be a bird as well -- it sounds particularly delightful when you're as old as I am!!! Hope you have a great week!

  2. Hi Janice .. love it - great feeling ... I'd perch on swaying branches ... such fun being high up ...

    Cheers Hilary

  3. Nicely done in the Fibonacci format. Fine imagery and style.

  4. Very nice.....sums up dthe feeling of being a bird very nicely.

  5. lovely, a good interpretation of the picture.

  6. I love this, Janice. The shape of the poem fits well with the swooping feeling of the words!

  7. Great job with a difficult form ... your poem flows beautifully.

  8. Very nice. You have captured the wonder of a bird's life. Love the shape of the poem as well.

  9. That's really lovely Janice, very clever and creative.

  10. Poetry has never been my thing, having to compose one would drive me crazy, having to compose one in a certain style would have me tearing out my hair.
    You do this very well though, and I admire that.

  11. I've often thought this but NEVER had the words to say it like you have.

  12. You made a Fibonacci--cool! This is wonderful. Keep spreading those wings.

  13. Tweet, tweet, tweet!!!
    Nice fibonacci, J.B. It reads very nicely.

    Thank you. It did get me to thinking, how really free is the bird? For sure when they become parents they have many obligations. More too, but I won't dwell.

    I love the birds in Regents Park--I visited it about four times this London visit, maybe five. It is walking distance from my daughter and family home.

  14. indeed well shaped...and well written...thanks for sharing
