“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all.
Their feathers are too bright,
their songs too sweet and wild.
So you let them go, or when you open the cage
to feed them they somehow fly out past you.
And the part of you that knows
it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices,
but still, the place where you live
is that much more drab and empty
for their departure.”
Robin, at Breezes at Dawn, has been participating in the Three Day Quote Challenge. She was invited by our mutual friend, Eliza. Both have issued a general invitation for any of their followers to join in.
The rules are simple: Post an inspirational, uplifting quote for three consecutive days, and invite three other bloggers to join you. If you are reading this, please consider yourself invited.
“Can miles truly separate you from friends…
If you want to be with someone you love,
aren’t you already there?”
