Soul Bird

 Today, a poem I wrote that was inspired by a biblical passage.

                                                              Soul Bird
A soul bird flew
In skies above
It soared with joy
And it shone with love,
But a hunger pulled it
From its way
To an earthly pit
Of dust and clay.
The soul bird yearned
And it stretched its wings
But its heart was snared
By earthly things
So it softly prayed
With head bent down
And cast away
Its worthless crown
And will rise from blackness,
Empty night
To seek a radiant,
Brilliant light.


  1. and the moral of the story is.... you can't keep a good soul bird down.
