March 21st 2013. First ever Sunday Photo Fiction

With wings spread I long to be free
With bread on my beak I’m off
To the light away from the devil
And the stranger gave me a send off

Thunder growls without warning from sky
And the plane left its stripe
Away from the devil to the light
As it switches it on its tailpipe

Shy away from the snatches of greed
Driving away the evil
To the light away from the devil
To freedom I’ll always be careful
