The Freedom To Dance – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Wrens are well known for picking up and leaving whenever they feel the need.” Bernadette King

The Freedom To Dance

Tiny, delicate, insignificant wrens,
skittering oblivious past our feet,
dancing, looking for crumbs

∽ of excitement leading to life ∼

which they unwittingly offer to us
through their significant testimony
to the freedom to dance into life.

  3. This reminds me of my glassed in porch in CO.  Looking out from my kitchen window a family would pop around from the tree we let grow there to encourage nesting.  It was a absolute treat to see them dance around on the ledges of the windows.  Actions like this I consider gifts from mother nature♥️

  6. Another splendid puente! The form, the imagery, and the message filled me with delight. And on that note, I’m going to end my day and head off to bed.
