When your hands can mimic birds,
you lose the need for sound.
A flight of words that bear no chirp
are none the less profound.

They don't perch on a pitch.
They don't possess the need .
They fly until you've seen their song,
then silently recede.

No one could find more freedom than
the freedom granted flight.
No one can see more beauty than in
words passed left to right.
Been studying ASL on my own from a book and Signingsavvy.com. I don't understand the grammar that well, but my vocab is getting bigger and bigger everyday. It's such a pretty language.

OMFG you guys, a DD?! I've been hanging out with my husband while he's been home so I totally missed this. I wondered how I had 400 some comments. I've wanted one of these since I joined this site like, 2 years ago. I'm so honored and I'm just thrilled to have so many people read my work. Thank you all so much!

very nice.  line five is a bit troublesome, since the meter (rhythm) is thrown off here with only six beats.  it interrupts an otherwise nice flow..  you could resolve the problem by changing don't to do not, or never.

Hello!

As part of =SilverInkblot's Found Poetry Project, I used the title of this beautiful deviation in a poem here:

Breaking Burdens

Thank you so much! :heart:

Oh, right! Just after I posted the previous comment, I realised that you had this deviation in a group for deaf dA members. Delayed reaction there. But yeah, thanks for clearing that up! :lol:

Beautiful,

Justifies the expressiveness of sign language in each passage, and with a fitting natural analogy, birds.

That's exactly what I was going for.

Thank you so much!
