Who would have thought the years being locked in a cage would be the happiest time of my life?
I used to dream about gliding- my wings spread wide as I rode the breeze over a horizon that went on forever. I would wake in the dark and scream out in frustration, hoping that someday I could sing my real song.
The nights became longer and the dreams became unwelcome. You see, when I'm too caged in, fantasies are more like nightmares, taunting me, teasing me; a blatant reminder of what I can never have.
It was all I wanted. It was everything.
I escaped the first time the opportunity presented itself. Barreling through the unlocked door, I ran down the table and leaped through the open window with wings unfurled. I sang then, the sweetest noise I have ever made.
Until I fell.
I had never truly experienced the sensation of falling. It wasn't as peaceful as I imagined. It was terrifying.
I thought flying would come easy. I thought I would simply beat-beat-beat my wings and soar beyond the highest branch. I thought I would rub elbows with the clouds. Instead I awkwardly plummeted downward, the wind non-existent, and the only beat-beat-beat was my frantic heart.
And now…as I sit with a broken wing, I still don’t sing. I don’t whine either. I can’t make a sound- not without being noticed
I am a lone swallow in the wild, a middle creature who hunts for grubs yet I am easy prey. I am unprotected.
At least the cage was warm. At least in the cage there was food.
Freedom is fierce gales and cold earth barren of cover.
And still I dream of flight. I sing so beautifully in my race to the sun. I bask in its warmth before it blinds me- remnants of my pupils drip like black ink from empty sockets. The heat… it burns me, my screams unheard due to the height. I float as ash, a flurry of forgotten songs.
Again I wake, cursing freedom.
What a cruel joke.

Bi-Monthly Feature - WinterHi everyone!
WOW-Macros will be doing bi-monthly features from now on.
Two times a month we will be featuring pieces of artwork from the group that deserve some recognition!
For the most of us it's currently winter.
It's cold, it's harsh and some of us are buried in snow.
But no one can deny the WOW factor about snowflakes and frost.
They are one of a kind and give you a sense of awe.
I hope you all enjoy the feature.
Give thanks to the amazing artists!
