I become all feathers
My bones turn hollow
Beaks of Munias*
You fold your wings
On my palms
Looking at me
And promise me
To ‘fly me
To the moon’
*a kind of finch found in India
**Indian Paradise Flycatcher

Oh, sigh, how lovely….the bird of Muse……..I love the hands becoming wings, the throat, song………beautiful, Sumana.
The bird of muse… sigh.. lovely ❤ ❤
Lots of love,
Beautiful, makes me feel like flying and traveling around 🙂
I love this:
and the rest…
What a transformation! Something to look forward to, to stay open for, with Dudhraj eyes both promising and asking for the moon! Sigh. My new cats have Dudhraj eyes, but they don’t yet come to my hands. You are magic.
I really like this poem! It reminds me so much of my own flighty muse.
Beautifully penned, Sumana. A bird can indeed be a wonderful muse….and I really liked your ending…fly me to the moon!
This is so lovely, Sumana!
also…gorgeous photo on your header!
Nature’s creatures are great prompts for writing especially when we humanize them and give them our feelings. Of course this is not new as ancient Greek and Roman mythology really loved that aspect in their literature.
Here is a rare look at this beautiful bird, where he sweetly gives us an absolutely beautiful muse! WOW!
The opening imagery is stunning – and the preciousness of that little bird in your palm – and its promise truly touching..
I really enjoyed this as I have a beautiful bird who sings when I write.
There’s such a whimsical connection with the muse in your poem, Sumana. Its a look into beautiful skies.
Nicely done… a delicate bird as a muse with its sweet song
This is so wow!!
