A rare bird

A rare bird. 




A rare bird is he with feathers illuminous red and green; 

a bird that only few will ever see and perhaps twas meant to have been. 

This bird flies free over mountains and through the mind of a dream; 

escaping all barriers and leaving only temperance in mean. 

A breeze will lift him to the highest contemplation of being; 

and the rain will make him cry for this means a heart is bleeding. 

The whistle of this bird when heard flows gently and transcends feelings; 

he sits on your shoulder sometimes just to see what books you are reading. 

Don't be mistaken in thinking you'll ever actually be able to see him; 

first you must close your eyes and let yourself believe anything.
