somewhere in Africa

I hear the swallows

home now

from somewhere in Africa

do birds feel ‘home’

& is it here or there?

I hear them

& feel happy

& too soon

they will be gone again

& I too want

to be on the wing

soaring flying

held in the warm winds

true envy here

that’s what I really feel

envious of birds

that can follow the sun
