Bygone Dreams

behind the pane
he peers intently
gathering stars
netloads each night

in the day gossing
laughing winds
whispering gaily

when storms are about
watches light shudder
crack open the dark

one fine day
it happened
fate prank played

wham! shatter, ruffle
feathers everywhere
gangly dizzy birdie

he gazes amazed
angered, interrupted
down shattered

quick decision
irritating intrusion

breezes now bothered
shattered glass all over
safety in the wind

quickly replaced
all back in place
birdie dazed but well

outside new pane
all quite the same
pain drifts away
