Fear Not, Little Bird

Standard

Little bird,
you must stretch your wings
if you would fly.
You must leave the nest
if you would breathe.
Don’t be afraid,
the fresh air of this wide open world
calls to you.
Listen,
jump,
now soar...

There is no wrong way
to fly in the sky
circling in the blue vastness…
just don’t get stuck in the nest.
There is no room
for those beautiful wings of yours
in the old confined place
of your infancy.
At any rate,
if you tarry too long
you will be pushed from the nest
by the Great Mother,
the awakener of us all.

Don’t grieve the loss
of that which is familiar.
What at first seems painful
is life moving you to a place
of greater expansion.
Little bird,
don’t be afraid.
You are more than capable
of opening to this moment,
ready to meet your grandest destiny,
circling in the blue vastness…
