11 Free Spirit

Free Spirit

Mom said
to not let anyone
squash my free spirit.
A spirit that hovers
between the fat bottoms
of cumulus clouds
and spring mud,
composting leaves,
in a copse of paper birch
with two slim white tree trunks

There’s a trick
the song birds use
flapping their wings
to lift their colorful bodies.
Between beats
they sink
then press the air again
boosted upward.

Spirit is like this.
