passerine

songbird
warbling sweetly
i want to sing with you
soaring above, the fount of my
lament
fairy bluebird just out of reach
flirting, aloof and
like a fireflash
distant.

  2. brutal? maybe.
    distant, unattainable, out of reach, for sure.
    flying away.

    "warbling"
    "fount of my lament"

  4. i do, too. and making up words and descriptions.
    but, also, a fairy bluebird is a real bird.
    indigenous to southern asia and the phillippines.
    very beautiful. here is a photo. http://bit.ly/fMeC01

  6. Love the associations that go with bluebird (of happiness) vs. your 'lament.' Nicely done.
