How small / How perfect


How small
How perfect
The feathered
Chest of
The Sparrow
Ruffled and ready
If I could
Hold her in my palm
Feel her courage
Through her hollow
Bird bones
I might be able
To fly

  2. Proof of miraculous, diversity and awe…I was thinking about the theme of not sleeping, sleeping and waking up to the touching, impacting sweetness of the sparrow’s singing and a song by an amazing Jazz artist came to mind…I’ve been listening to her since 03… Liz Wright , Jazz songstress & composer … “Wake Up, Little Sparrow” – I suggest watching the slide show too, she is pretty.. another beautiful song by LW – “When I Close My Eyes” Listening and Immersion to this is a Must, imho! – the lyrics capture, her voice resonates and holds, as if the passion is speaking from my soul’s lamenting .. palatable pulsation and sophistication …. // the Bible also speaks of Sparrows…
