    Bird in the sky

    Stacey Anderson: Bird

    Stacey was sitting upstairs on a bus, going home from attending the Nature and Wellbeing course, which was run by Shirin. She looked up and saw a bird fly past, quite close to the bus. This inspired her to write this poem from the point of view of that bird.

    High in the sky
    Looking around
    Enjoying the view
    The houses
    The hills 
    The trees
    The people
    The sky blue in colour 
    Blue as can be
    In parts the sky is white
    I glide over 
    See a bus turning right
    Full of people
    Who are they? 
    Where are they going? 
    Can they see me soar? 
    Can they see me flying? 
    Do they look through the windows? 
    To see what’s above 
    To see the glory of the landscape 
    To see others like me
    To see us land
    To see a murmuration
    To dazzle 
    To wonder
    As we do our dance 
    We exist
    Just look around you
    You’ll see us fly by
    Our feathers flutter
    As we glide
    Going about our business
    Just like the humans
    Who look like ants from up here
    But are scary when we get close to them
