Watching the hills, I sat impatiently,
waiting for something extraordinary.
I watched as a bird flew right by me
and sat on a tree with not one single leaf.
It gently sang, its boring song,
And I still waited for something better to come along
Then I heard it! That amazing thing!
The echo of a song, no bird could sing.
It was so beautiful, something beyond my knowledge.
The echo came over and over, and I was held hostage.
The echo caught me with each and every note,
better than anything humans ever wrote.
And then I found out what it was
All that time, it was a loss.
It was from that leafless tree,
The bird was the one who astonished me.
This is a poem I wrote a couple of months ago. Writing poems isn’t my cup of tea, but I’m learning. This poem is just a lighthearted one and I felt extremely peaceful when I wrote this. I actually won second place in a writing competition for this. I hope you like it 😀
