Fallen bird

A broken wing I thought it would be
a too small branch under my feet
layers of snow, so deep
the sky, blue and high
nowhere a creature in sight
nor a breathe or a sound
I followed the echoes
voices hard to track
Tried to sing, unspoken
extract what is there
Shadows that I walked by
a heart's scream
a fall from illusion
love gave me the push
a dive from cliffs above
into her eyes, cold, warm, changing
a sudden attack of Nordic winds
To put a kiss on her forehead
dress her in a hug, feed by a smile
Not the wings ...
