Seeds

Seeds sown
in the belly of a bird
bloom dark wings.
Songs sung
in the night's womb
are true.

Dreams done
with sleep
take to walking.
Walking
star to star
to get to you.

For Karin's prompt at Real Toads

This is just beautiful, MZ. One of my favorites of yours. Really just lovely in all ways--very original thoughts, beautiful music, striking wonderful images. Thanks. k . Manicddaily

Beautiful, MZ, as always and this one I will put where I can read it every morning!

Love the inter-connected-ness of these disparate things and how you loop them together like ice skaters gracefully chained together. I hope you understand very inelegant metaphor.

Anyways, I loved this.

Star music. And such a very long walk, almost as long as the light takes getting here.

Oh, this is gorgeous. Rhyme works so well for you here, connecting stars like dots.

This one's really special. (And here I am, insomniac - a rare thing for me - feeling that the lines, 'dreams done / with sleep' speak directly to me.)

Oh I love that second stanza, the whole notion of the dreams walking. Also, I love how the rhyme is in the last lines of each stanza.
