Sometimes I wonder
about my ever growing love
Is it the grandeur of the blue
that it proudly boasts of
or the brilliant strokes of green
and purple that adorn its feathers...
Is it the shining neck
or the playful shining hearts on its tail...
Is it the large striking eyes
gazing beyond their range
or the music of its heart
coming out through its crown...
Is it the way it dances
to celebrate its gorgeousness
or the way
it gracefully carries itself...
Oh I still wonder
if it is the compassion it symbolizes
or the fact that despite all the flaws and imperfection
each feather has...
collectively they create a beauty
that is joy forever !!
