“Someone Saved My Life Tonight”

Prison cell window view

Six inch surreptitious slice

Constrained vista of the natural world

Intermittently bird populated

Haven of visual escape.

Feathered moments of wonderment

Soften despairing edges of misery;

Flocks colorful reminders of beauty

Enliven monotonous ritual of hours;

Wing droppings of joyful life

Lighten weight of panicked limbo.

Absorbing nuances of style and grace

Studying interactions, behavior patterns,

Birds rejuvenate my wilted soul

Echoing Elton John’s crooning

“Someone saved my life tonight.”
