The cage has opened
Broken wings beat against bars
The means of flight lost

    Oh! Yes Bear you are writing my soul right now, you lay me bare to the world. Only now after writing about depression this week do I see your words…. Two minds as one across the miles maybe. xxx

    Absolutely brilliant Haiku, Bear. I love it. 🙂 Magical how a few words fall together like that and can move something within me. 🙂

    This is powerful imagery that definitely evokes that feeling of despair. Finally having the cage open, only to realize that one’s ability to fly has been hampered by the damage already sustained. Haikus don’t always get me, but this one sure did! Kudos, Bear!
