Parakeets Flying Back Home
A pair of parakeets fly back home,
It’s been a long day, and their wings move
In the air, pushing through the wind
As the day dies behind them.
They have traveled long distances,
And the thought of being back home
Feels warm, and sweet. The best part
Of flying, is returning to one’s bed.
The sun, still out and smiling, shows them
The path traveled many times before.
But there’s always something new
About going back. Something always changes.
If they knew for certain, this is their
Last trip back home, they would close
Their eyes, and take their time. But, today
Could be just like any other day.
So the parakeets pushed their wings,
Through the wind, and fly towards home.
The same home that waits for them,
Like the last time, and the time before that.
