Moving Pictures

Can the old hunched sparrow
spread its wings
to fly with mountains
and soft Spring air,
above the fields
where none else knows
the cloud's embrace?
Where no faces hold in contempt
the life of one that holds
its own pity for itself
above its love for others,
and smothers its doubts
with shame.

[Hata Bildir]
