A Hope.....

Feel Free, Fly High..

A glass window, A crash against it!

Broken wings, Broken spirit..

A wish to fly again, A wounded soul..

A healing hand, A hope to fly again..


And Life continues.....


PS: This is about a cuckoo that crashed against our window ten days back... even though it is badly injured, the spirit with which the bird tries to fly again is amazing.. Few days back when we had kept the bird outside to enjoy the morning sun, a eagle out of no where came down and carried it away.. but then it dropped it back immediately into our neighbor's compound.. the bird was injured again due to the fall.. but it never lost its spirit... every day i look at it gazing up into the sky and trying to fly again...
And am very sure it will fly away one day....

Guess we all have something to learn from this....

That's why they say spirit never dies.

Remember the song by Kailash - ALLAL KE BANDEH from WAISE BHI HOTA HAI - 2

The middle para says beautifully 'Khoke pe apna par hi tho usne udna sika... Gam ko apne saath me lele.... dardh bhi kaam aayega'

@mayz
Yeah it is a very unlucky bird.. cos just as it was recovering from its first fall.. The damn eagle made it fall again...

this weird cuckoo keeps on pecking at my car rear view mirror...

such an irritation in the afternoons when i am napping to glory..

but sometimes when i see them ruffling in the birdbath stand.. i always have the upward curve on my face...

@Chriz
Yeah the cuckoos have some weird attraction towards the windows at home too...
But this is the first time that one has actually gotten hurt badly cos of that....
