What held back – a poem by Subha Rajesh

what flipped within
as the soft doe eyes
and untested feathers
flew into the sky’s jungles
where eagles and hawks prowl

what held back
as her little babe
found courage to reach
freedom in the wind
life in beauty and strife
the breadth that reached
the thirsty deep veins

she that wished
all she had and more
for her sweet child
life’s gift to her
to reach beyond her mortal cage

With the Grace of the Lord,
Subha Rajesh
