broken songbird

broken-songbird

can you love

a broken songbird

if she never sings

 

can you lift her

broken form

into your gentleness

and bring her home

to Love

 

will you let her hobble

in the garden

to look beneath the stones

for nourishment

and gather seeds of nuture

 

or will you put her

in a cage again

for protection

from the neighbor’s cat

 

will you let her fly

to test her mended wing

and rejoice in her

bright feathers on the wind

 

even if they grow in funny colors

 

but somehow more than all of this

i need to know

can you love

a broken songbird

if she never sings
