Circling Birds / Circundar Pájaros



Birds they circle
In the sky
But they never land
Wish they would come down from high
And eat right from my hand

But skittish and suspended
My floating friends they stay
They sit ascended
In the clouds
And will not come my way.

Perhaps some cruel mistreatment
From another hand
Has taught them to be wary
Of their fellow man

For my birds have no feathers
No need
For beak
To speak 
No wings
To bring them home
No tufted crests
No twiggy nests
For them to call their own.

But they are the full possessors
Of vision
Bright and clear
And yet they never see me
Hand outstretched
Down here.

And when I raise my voice
In gentle, sweet refrains
Calling down from overhead
They make their choice
They turn their heads
And simply circle
Once again.




Aves circundan

En el cielo

Pero nunca aterrizan

Deseo que se vendrían desde lo alto

Y come bien de mi mano



Pero asustadizo y suspendidos

Mis amigos flotantes que se quedan

Se sientan ascendidos

En las nubes

Y no vendrá a mi manera.



Tal vez algunos malos tratos crueles

De otro lado

Ha enseñado a desconfiar

De sus semejantes

Para mis pájaros no tienen plumas

No es necesario

Para pico

Hablar

Sin alas

A traer a casa

No copetudas crestas

No hay jerarquías twiggy

Para que llamen a sus propios.



Pero son los poseedores completo

De la visión

Brillante y claro

Y sin embargo nunca me ven

Mano extendida

Aquí abajo.



Y cuando levanto mi voz

En bordones suaves y dulces

Llamando desde arriba hacia abajo

Hacen su elección

Giran sus cabezas

Y simplemente círculo

Otra vez.

You are so sweet :) Perhaps when I have a good number of them I will look into that. The kindness of many on here makes me think of it as a possibility. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement, dear :)

The ever-longing feeling of being accepted, of being acknowledged, of being chosen just for once is enough to make anyone tingle in the toes with that fleeting moment of joy.

The birds circle on, dear. Comfortable in their unawareness. Sad! And of course not you, sweet one. You are a true gem! Thanks for the sweet words :)
