Little Green Bird

.
.
A small Green Bird
Lives on this mountain,
Flitting about,
From pine tree to bush.
.
With one bright eye,
Then the other,
Little Green Bird
Carefully studied me.
.
It is you, little Green Bird,
With your lovely plumes,
And friendly glance,
Who are the rare encounter.
.
Why did you linger,
Coming closer when I laughed?
Such a funny little bird,
You tiny warbling green beauty.

The little fellow I saw was a definite green, a pine green,  greener than the guide illustrations.   Not only did he have a personality, he had a sense of humor.

Songs and Calls

Musical and somewhat melancholy, a soft, sweet version of the trill of the Chipping Sparrow.

Laughter

.
.
As the crows
And I
Sit atop
My favorite
Thorn tree
Watching the
Light change
The shadows
Dance I
Think of you
And gossip
With my
Shimmering
Friends
They know
You better
Than I am able
To remember
They speak
To me
The language
Of laughter
When the
Wise ones
Fly east
Seeking roost
I remain alone
Among thorns
Comfortable
In forgetfulness
