flightless bird

have you ever seen a wounded thing
maybe in the grass
fallen from the nest
struggling
to be
free
maybe
there are predators
closing in
and
shutting down
the song
of the redeemed
and you
stand still
for an instant
in the space between
walking away
or
giving yourself
and all your love
to mend
the broken wing
