from my open window

i trace the memory

of the bird who has flown

on a broken wing


she seeks a passage

she seeks an answer

where i know neither

the route nor the question


from my open window

i trace the journey

of the bird who has flown

on a broken wing


i watch the red fingers of twilight

that replace the golden glow of the afternoon

i watch the blue fingers of night

that slowly ebb the strength of the dusk


i watch where the silhouette

of a broken wing has flown

from my open window


and all that remains is the echo

of where she once stood
