The birds are a symbol of life and freedom
Ultimately free as in nature
Freedom, however, is an illusion
Invisible boundaries are set
Boundaries of convention and of the material world
She strives to be free
She captures the birds to learn from them
She is transforming
She becomes birdlike
But she is not ready
The material world is not easily shaken off
It is engulfing her
The aspirations of love, hope, creativity, freedom
are becoming illusive and even painful
She tries to escape and break out violently
But the boundaries remain around her
⎯ Yuyu Chen
