Bird of Sorrow


 

This night
the Bird of Sorrow
came to me
with words of grief.

It whispered in my ear
that humanity´s dark

cruel

that we´ve lost ourselves
in hatred
disgrace
and lack of faith.

    • Maybe it is only the fact that English is not my natural language, but I would not call it an event. An event is for me ging to the circus. But maybe you are in the same position as me. I am lack of words to describe this with justice.
      Thanks for your comment.

  3. Beautifully written and felt, you can be proud… I have to say though that the “bird of sorrow” was really too kind in its whispers about mankind… Nonetheless, I loved that piece. Please, do write more in that kind. You have a lot to say with a unique way that should get you even more readers ^_^

    • Thanks Claire,
      Yes, maybe the bird was to kind. I promise to do better next year, with the idea I got you know.
      This time.. I just wrote what I felt. I think the sadness behind it was more important for me, than anything else for the moment.
      Thanks for a breat lunch today!
      See ya!
