The Little Clay Bird with the Broken Beak

November 21, 2020


The little clay bird with the broken beak
Sitting so silently on the wood sill.
Cannot fly with weighted down wings
Needs to but can't unleash her trill.

The little clay bird with the broken beak
Longing to like real birds fly.
But made of earth is the little clay bird
Wants to but can't verbalize her cry.

The little young girl with the sad brown eyes 
Hugging herself to bed a stranger
Her first night her parents dead
Walking to a place full of great danger. 

Hi guys! Thank you so much for reading! This poem combines two completely different things: the clay bird I made at school and my protagonist in the story I am working on.
Thanks again for reading! If anyone wants to be prayed for please say so and I as well as many other people would be happy too! God loves you so much!

    This is amazing! Love the imagery and kind of mystery or sadness of the piece.

    I love the rhyming in this! And I love the parallels you drew between the girl and the clay bird; the girl's story sounds so sad already
    Wonderful writing! :)
