The Bird

We came upon a bird you and I…

he was beautiful…blue and gray…

his final act…even after his soul had flown away…

was to give a moment to two humans following a similar path…

 

His final moment of this life was beside your vehicle…

a vehicle in a place where I would always go…

perhaps the Universe does know things…a general destiny…yet…

the choices we make are our own…I chose to walk with you…to the animal with flight in her eyes…the same flight in mine…

 

We placed the beauty in his final resting place…together…

he did not fly away…

he just flew home…

we helped him get there…our gift to him…

 

The Voyager who is about to fly, is not flying away…

I am just going to fly for a while…

getting closer to home…

a home which is now known…a home searched for all my life…it has always been in me…

 

As a seabird will do sometimes…I will do…

land on a dock far away from the dock you have seen…from the dock we began this journey…yet…

to the dock where you are destined to be…where I will be…at the same moment in time…

the two Voyagers find…

 

The place destined…

Portugal.
