Blue Jay

Tell me of the 'Blue Jay'
who sings from tree to tree in the early hours of the morning.

Has he found his nest and mate well hidden amongst the hanging Moss?

On what Oak tree lies his precious treasure,
his hearts and ever needing desire?

Across the pond close to the waters edge
the Ducks family celebrate Water, Fire and Earth.
Readying for their Sunday walk through Avalon.

Duck~feet firmly on the Earth clutching nail~down into an unbreakable pace, they march one by one making most of time and space...

BLUEJAY lost amidst desire wanders now from tree to tree,
misplace and forgotten by the nights heavy storm....

Tell me!
Tell me of the dreary song of lost souls in morning sun,
are they of the Blue Jay or of your own heart?

Are you home smiling to the stars or on a collision course with desire?

Is getting hot outside but where is home with Moss on every tree and Duck's all around?

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
