A Bird Unknown

A Bird Unknown.

He walks alone
A path it seems that’s rarely understood
A bird unknown
And many would declare he is no good
Detachment strongly marked within his air
For foolish things he really has no care.

He be no Christian
Nor Buddhist, nor a Moslem nor a Jew
But hear his wisdom
Then you may learn some things you always knew
Within the murky swamp the Lotus grows
From the mud there comes the beauty of a rose.

He marches to the rhythm of an unknown drum
And he often seems to wander from the crowd
And often with the words he says he causes such a hum
It maybe that his message is too loud.

I would venture that the person is just ahead of most of us in the understanding of what gives. It's amazing how people will be accepting all those ideas in 50 years....maybe sooner since we live in the media age. If we make it that far (ha ha)!

G'day Peter … if you don't keep in step with the mainstream Peter, the bird has to be a dead duck, but dead ducks keep annoying the main stream and politically correct. We need all the dead ducks we can get - I enjoyed your poem Peter - Lindsay

Hi Lindsay I always. I guess that one can be a dead duck if he think's out of the box sometimes it is good to your own person. My dad always said I will get myself in trouble. He was so conventional and I was the opposite. Thank you for your kind comments, mate. I appreciate your kind comments. Have a great weekend...Peter
