Encircled in Love 

Once a favorite 

childhood companion

Skipping and fluttering

In abandon,

playing in mud, like me

In puddles, like me

In bushes, like me

Fearless

Friendly

Energetic

Brown puffs
So little worry 

In their little life

Or so I thought

Even as they were

Systematically annihilated 

By callous mankind
Now they flutter 

Only in my imagination

Little friendly ghosts

From an almost forgotten 

Childhood
Sparrows
