Set Free by Byron Beynon

I held it in the wrapping of my hand,
felt the drum of its life,
the stir echoing like secrets
unwinding to places it knew;
finding wings, a declaration,
a passport to sojourn
as I relaxed my touch
to allow imagination's untethered
flight to form again,
this music of wilderness,
a life unlocked, re-won,
a flying colour set free.

Byron Beynon lives in Swansea, Wales. His latest collection is Human Shores (Lapwing Publications, 2012).
