“The conference of the birds” is:
Indeed, the power of flight.
Birds symbolize freedom, as in the expression “free as a bird.”
But it is also…air pollution and birds migration.
Thought pollution and mind migration.
The eyes of others might be our prisons;
their thoughts our cages….
It’s about cages and courage for freedom.
Would you want to protect the innocent in a comfortable, safe, warm, cosy life in a cage, or an uncertain life of freedom?
“She is like the wind, open and free. If I cage the wind, would it die?
-Then don’t cage it. Trust it to stay beside you.”
