Why Do Sparrows Fly?

The sparrow’s flight,  miraculous working
of hollow bone and feathered wing,

untethered by the need
to claim more than a spot to land

and when it lights,
sustenance for day, a nest for night.

Because we dwell in things that are,
it is often difficult to soar,

Sometimes the truth is other than it seems,
Could be the sparrow flies so man might dream.
