Poetry as the Mockingbird Sings

“My heart is like a Mockingbird, it sings of your enthralling soul every now and then. And, even when I yearn to evade the lyric. I can’t. Because, as it turns out, it’s a sin to kill a Mockingbird.” 
― Mohit Kaushik |Yenugwar|

Poetry as the mockingbird sings
though fraught with a bent and broken wing
a voice of faith and belief all will be well
once the torment has swelled and eased
praying gentle rain will soothe with relief
for though this fragile body is failing
and now forever earthbound
someday this soul will soar ever higher
into the arms of the billowy clouds
then I– the poet will be the poetry
as the delicate wind carries me
so listen for my song’s whisper
floating on the evening breeze.
