03 - Bird of Paradise

We came
to a pleasant grove
which stretched
down to the water's edge.
We halted
by a rivulet
which murmured
and splashed
along its pebbly bed
into the great ocean before us.
A thousand
gaily-plumaged birds
flew twittering
above us.

  1. I came to visit via Debra Kay at Beam Me Up, Scotty. I love this bird (of paradise, lol) and it would make a pretty tattoo.
