I know why you sing,
on your little perch you cry,
if only to be free.
Ah Haiku, such a lovely thing, this one was written for :iconpoetry-book: 's tournament "Scratch That" For round three we had to write a single haiku with the theme "bondage" keep in mind, this group is all about POSITIVE things, so the message behind this little set of syllables will have to convey that meaning. :) When I think of poetry, I think of Maya Angelou's "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" it's a poem about fearing the future, and singing for freedom, of being afraid, and lost, and then being able to sing of foreign winds, and new experiences. This is my way of honoring her spirit. This is her poem, may you all feel it's spirit as much as I do. [link]
