Two Bluebirds.

So I walked outside,
and there they were
these two baby bluebirds
in the gap underneath
the threshold of my back door.

It was as if
they were knocking
to get in,

and meant to be mine.

Only for every knock
there was a peep instead.

So I picked them up,
and brought them inside
as my compassion
always gets the best of me.

I dreampt only of what
I would do in reality,
because who's going to leave
two baby bluebirds outside
all alone on a freezing winter day?

There they sat in my palm,
just large enough to fit
two tiny fluffy bluebirds.

Then I woke up.
