They feel their life draining,


Their color changing.


Their mother letting them go


To save herself.


They peak at the ground


Far away


A long jump


Their brothers take the leap




The wind takes them away


His courage


The wind chills


They rustle


They whisper


“Let’s go too.”


They gather their courage


And they jump




And the wind takes them away
