#NaPoWriMo2019 – Day 29: ‘Fledgling’

(Published a month late for reasons).

Fledgling
 
Fledgling flutterball, just chase that butterfly,
collide with who I assume is your sibling
and forget the insect for a fleeting fight.
Now is the best time in your life for quibbling,
when you’re freer as a bird now than you’ll
ever be again. My garden’s a cruel
place to grow up, fleeing from outside-cats each
day, so make the most few flighty weeks.
