Blue Jay

Blue Jay

by Carmen H Gray

From the tiny bones we saw tufts

Containing a bundle of energy

Striped blue and black feathers to come

Bold and loud

You cried out, “Go on!”

As you pushed open your diminutive wings

Your mother called for you

Fearlessly flying

And failing

Your natural state of being

Is to persevere

Regardless of your circumstances
