Three Little Birds

Three Little Birds © by Alma de la Melena Cox

Three Little Birds,
outside my doorstep,
sang me a melody pure,
upon their visit,
gracing me
with sweet presence,
flying in on footsteps
to climb a staircase
toward Heaven's
for a family needing
healing understanding.
Together they opened
a door to a single cage
in my Redwood cathedral
where the littlest bird's
words flew deep and wide
over this canopy
of Pure Life, she said
"We don't pick our family,
but if I could, I'd pick
the two of you again,"
The forest roots
heard, reached for each
other with tender care
through the veil,
while love and wisdom
flew on wings
from my doorstep.
