I’m happy to announce that my third poem has been published in Spillwords. I wrote this a few months ago, and now, after reviewing by the literature team of Spillwords, it was selected to be published.
I have attached the link if you would like to read it, and please feel free to comment.
In a golden cage Little hummingbird Lived With clipped wings And fettered by its owner Voiceless Hopeless Until she saw him Fluttering around the cage Trying to break the chains Sharing the nectar A beautiful reminder Of love, hope and life. -JMJ
Once full of life, It gave lives to many, Sunshine was its friend, Who used to put happiness on its face, And breeze its companion, With whom it loved to dance. Then the time changed, Starting to change its colour, Was the first sign of ageing, Now the sunshine was nomore tender, And the breeze transformed into storm. Disgraced and battered, It fell on the ground, Lying there, It was stepped by many, But it took that chance to leave an imprint, On their path forever.
