The Migratory bird

Pooja Priyamvada
red bird with wings spread ou

She a still lake

in the middle of nowhere

He a Red Knot

flying 16,000 kilometres

twice a year

from his “home”

called Siberia

no maps, no compass

– only soul

his geomagnetic field

– only love

sun during the day

stars by night

leading him to her

he built a nest

in her

and then

she set him free

back to the sky

where he was meant to be

as she held his image

in her still womb

her love was

a migratory bird !
