‘Perhaps You Didn’t See it’ (a Poem and a Painting)

This poem and painting were featured in Just My Cup of Tea magazine recently, and it is an honour to share them both here today. ☁️🦅

Perhaps you didn’t see it:
How they flew above you
And turned circles of hope –
Their feathers traced out
a pattern you once understood.

Perhaps you didn’t hear it:
The whoosh of their wings
Making way for a fresher breeze.

Listen now.

Feel the stirrings of solace
The whisperings of a heart unclosed
The softening steps of a soul at ease.

Breathe in your new story when it next arrives
Carried by the songs of a distant bird.

Perhaps You Didn't See It - Painting
