do parrots have dreams

of what might be

and just what it means

to be raised cage-free

Also brought to mind the Langston Hughes poem:

Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

In these difficult, challenging times, dreams can to be nightmares. We need to find our dreams again.

Langston Hughes

“A poet, novelist, fiction writer, and playwright, Langston Hughes is known for his insightful, colorful portrayals of black life in America from the twenties through the sixties and was important in shaping the artistic contributions of the Harlem Renaissance.”
