screen capture

cardinal in kiln room screened in

the door is wide open

but the panicked Cardinal only sees the screen,

perhaps still feeling it where her wings battered against its unyielding surface.

Captured by panic,

she rests on a beam –

too stressed to see the wide open door.

We may not create our own prisons,

but we certainly seem to keep ourselves in them.

Look around!

Peace, red bird, help is here.
