The Jester

 

 

 

The Jester

The Jester

 

The archetype

of a jester

running into flight,

A white Mandala 

for an eye,

& an orange beak for humor.

Leopard wings opening

and closing

Knowing

there is no end

Yellow Warbler

 

                                                                                                             Acoustic Fire

 

Sometimes a song burns on the inside

Until at just the right moment

it hits my vocal chords

And then there is no turning back

Purple Phoenix

Purple Phoenix

Purple Phoenix

A grotto of purple and snowy white petals

An ancient theatre of angelic dancers

held together in prayer

A phoenix rising

Eider's Gift

 

EIDER FEB 8914

 

Eider's Gift 

Into a galaxy of water droplets

Shaking off intergenerational fears

A sunlit, pink hue is cast

Merganser's Presence

 

Merganser's Presence

Merganser's Presence

 

Eyes looking out from green velvet...

Snowy white heart feathers

Proud red beak

Ballet wings opening

to the inner concert.

Protection

 

Protection

 

Protection

Protection in the crook of your alabaster wing

Protection in the stillness of the water droplets

on your iridescent green feathers

Protection in the sunlight shining on your faces

so close to one another

Protection in the visible and invisible

connections of light, water, stones and the air of your contentment.

Loving Kindness

Loving Kindness

 

Loving Kindness

 

Searching eyes, open to golden ripples

Ears listening, fur glistening

Tasting sunrise blue,

Traveling lake water,

Playing the soul's music

Great Egret

GREAT EGRET

 

Great Egret

 

Destination sky

Purity of heart leading

Inspires fairytales
