Valley Bird, a poem

Inspired by the theme of “Hana(saki) Valley” from the video game, Okami

Like a breath of fresh air

Rising from the cool, moist depths

Of a valley that once lay dormant,

I, too, take flight

And gaze at my new surroundings.


The colorful trees laden with young fruit,

Water rushing down from a cliff

Only to meet what it tries to escape —

These sounds pierce the feathers of my wings


And give way to my eager descent.

But as I lay in the sky,

Feeling the sun brush my eyelids,


My mother’s call awakens me.

She smiles and warmly holds me in her hands.


I am loved.
