- “Poetry has risen”
“They said you are the bird with
The greatest muscles, that you are the
Bravest amongst the cabin of Aves, that in your
Abode no one trades, even among preys no one saves, but in this strange cave you have trodden, where tales of stubborn worms were once told.
They said you are the bird with the sharpest beak, that you see the heart of the ocean
From the highest peak, that in the den of phylum no one speaks, even at the rise of your
Shadow everyone sneaks, but there is a tiny
Worm with the greatest technique, who has been undisputed week by week.
Before the sun goes down, the gods shall call, for in the wings of time, your plight shall sail, for you have eaten the sacrifices kept for the gods, you have known no boundaries through your might.
These tales I know shall abound, when the deers shall thirst for water, these myths shall dwell, even in the temple of the hungry ravens, for there is a tiny stubborn worm, who has defied the belly of the smartest bird.
“The bird that swallowed
the stubborn worm”
“Poetry has risen”
