a mellow feeling in the breeze

i blew the feather
resting on my hand away
and it danced with the wind
 
slow and long
 
it reminded me of a kite
and the tight string
swirled on my hand
    

i tried to tame you
      

but you were a bird
singing lonely songs
and staying on my branches
wasn’t enough to keep you here
 
you flew where the sun sinks
hoping to cage its vastness in your wings
and the fear of letting go
has cloaked my shivering skin
the way dark clouds cover the blue in the sky
 
but now it pours
and the ground breathes
as the sky feels lighter
 
yet the feelings i held inside
weigh down the pockets
of moving on
 
my branches weep,
missing the songs
of the memories we can’t keep.
