The Cage Of The World Broken


The bird flew away
breaking the cage of madness

The bird flew away
breaking the cage of sadness

The bird flew away
breaking the cage of sorrows

The bird flew away
away! away! far away!

The bird flew away
to the world of peace,
Joy and happiness.

In short it died.

Breaking the cage of the world
reaching a world
where it can fly with freedom
with no strings attached...

    Hi Mary Your poem THE CAGE OF THE WORLD BROKEN is open to two interpretations: in one the bird is a real bird and the world is its and ours place of being. So the bird lives and dies as all worldly things do. In the second interpretation the bird is a symbol of the human soul and the poem shows that death releases the soul so that it can live in total freedom beyond the world. Right now, I am responding to the first interpretation, but there will times when I re-read your poem for the comfort provided by the second one. I had a wonderful canary
    I named TWEEL who lived a happy and full life but died naturally after seven years - a canary's natural span. I wrote the poem TWEEL'S PARTING SONG as a homage to him and a celebration of our time together. it's posted on my Poems Page. I trust you will appreciate it. Regards from Minnesota. (Report) Reply
