No Longer Birdsong

Prompt: Write from the point of view of a birdcage whose occupant recently died.


Response: No Longer Birdsong

It is the silence

not the very exact missing

in the emptiness

no longer birdsong

no longer feathers and seed.

Now the bird is gone.

Notes: I tried for a double haiku, but yeah . . .
