A flirty bird,
flapping around,
draws small circles,
above my crown.

Whistles release,
flapping around,
lyrical songs,
whimsical sounds.

Looks right at me,
flapping around,
cocks back his head,
to stare me down.

Dances so free,
flapping around.
Emotions rise,
pure bliss compounds.

Shows feathers off,
flapping around,
all long lost hope,
swiftly rebounds.

Flies up away,
flapping around,
as my heart melts,
true love is found.

The swaying forest trees
Dance to the winds melody

Dark grey skies are expected,
scattered tears fill up the day,
deep unease is projected,
sense deep peace may lead the way.

Search inside,
then decide,
inner guide,
or cold pride.

Overcast swiftly passes,
drags along brisk doubtful thoughts.
Calmness drizzles, love splashes,
dappled sun rays offer support.

Swiftly heal
how heart feels,
ego peels,
light reveals.

Puffy clouds carry raindrops,
to expose bright rainbow hues,
hydrate worn dry thirsty crops,
that provide hopes to pursue.

Erase lines,
dreams combine,
let soul shine,
feel divine.

Nature rings with loud thunder,
emotions vibrate inside.
Eyes quickly fill with wonder,
as outside clear visions shine.

Profound clues,
sprinkle truths,
minds will choose,
outer views.
