Painting by KARINA RODRIGUEZ, Honduras. “Open the gate”, poem by AERONWY THOMAS, UK

OPEN THE GATE

Open the cage
let the parakeet out
suburban gardens
woodland parks

Pour the fish bowl
down the drain
the sewer
ocean wave

Leave the garden gate
unlatched
dogs walk out
birds sing

Open
the night window
let the stars in.

AERONWY THOMAS
