Birds Mirrored

By Victoria K., Nonfiction Editor


Birds stand for freedom:
Canaries thrive in someone’s heart;
Seagulls teeter over the rocks, riding
The resilient wings of wind.

Birds stand for victory:
Ravens sweeping past flaming tares,
Eagles swooping over the mountain peaks,
A ride on the wings of hawks.

Birds stand for joy:
The plumage of camouflaged cranes,
The hymns of cardinals, the cries of jays,
The brush of fluff against your palm.

Birds stand for love:
Feathers braided into the wind,
Crowns of lilies around a nest,
Songs echoing through the dusk.
