Purple Martin

Written by Nikki P.

i follow the shadows, curious of their destination
my eyes peering as they fly higher;
their navy color remind me of my dreams,
the ones where i reach for the stars,
only for them to run farther

                                                                                                               and farther   

i use the breeze as a foundation,
to float till my head is in the clouds—
i glide through the cotton, 
flapping my wings to the beat of the wind;
as i soar against the pressure of the sky,
i see the mirror in the moon,
a reminder of my place among the others,
as they fly beside me,
and the lie in my name.
i fall back in realization, my eyes closing,
as i recall my dreams
