In Courage

Prompt from Writer's Island: write about courage

Solitary songbird, pale and gray,
perched on a leafless branch,
feathers disheveled and toes
almost frozen, wings stiffened
from nights of bruising cold,
softly singing of springtime…

  1. Do you sometimes see yourself as that songbird? I think maybe we all do at times,

    This is definitely a hopeful message, ☼
