The Goldfinch

a small poem about the courage in vulnerability

I saw
the bright goldfinch
flash his yellow belly
as he banked
to land amid thorns
and feast in
spiny thistle

you
who expose your softness
to forage seeds among the thorns
fly fearless and lively
as this small, golden bird,
listen to the voice
deep within
that says,
“BE”
