February Poem #3

…to a captive bird

he is very good
at mimicking his captors
dreaming of freedom, rafters,
spreading his wings should
the cage unlatch, come the rapture


A “Horatiodet”, a new form I created to shorten the Horatian Ode for my daily micropoetry posts. 5 Lines/Syllable Count: 5/7/6/5/9/Rhyme Scheme: a-b-b-a-b.
