Broken wings....

The days continue for me, when I have no clue what's inside my heart and what's coming on paper. The day started quite early today as I had a trip to the airport in the wee hours of morning. When I returned I was awake with my sweet ginger tea, a poetry book, some songs and a bit of Facebook. I tried to listen to some new singers (new for me), and eventually from Eagles, Beetles, Celion Dion, Kailash Kher, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and KK, I finally settled with my ultimate favorite- Jesse McCartney's 'Just So You Know'  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pts-t0mGEYE&feature=related). This is where the seeds of this poem emerges from. I don't think there is any connection, but it's just that the music & emotions in this song that gave me the feel for this particular poem. I want to try a different writing style, few words sketching a picture! Its new for me because I write clear meanings with relatively long poems. But recently, hidden words giving clear picture is what I have on my mind. A small trial, this one-

Stick by stick,
high up in the sky
perhaps just beneath the clouds
she made her nest.

Beautiful mornings took birth
enchanting evenings 
she lived merrily with
when Love reigned.

Today, a storm appeared
it blew everything off
she was found lying wing-less
just when Love left.
