This is the song of one small
bird, finally set free after seemingly
years in captivity.
Instinctively knowing to spread
her wings, becoming one with wind
which upholds her.
These are the words of one voice,
winging its way through the blue
of her knowing.
Feathers of truth keeping her
safe on this unknown path
she alone has chosen.

I have been spending my days on Facebook, encouraging others to find creative paths in order to get through this time of social isolation. Someone posted a choir singing “This is the sound of one voice,” and it stayed in my mind for hours. And became the inspiration
for this poem and my own journey back to my creative center.
