The Perched Bird. A Creative offering to John Hansen (Jodah)
A Free-style Sonnet. The above picture was inspired by John Hansen's 'Poems from the Porch' 16
Perched on the sacred branch of Love,
Her yellow weaves into the pageantry of
Colours, dancing in the stratosphere.
The skyline silhouette, like the grandeur of the soul,
Lights up with an untold magnificence … a poise,
Reminiscent of the sitting song-bird, nestling in the
Serenity of silence. She blends well with the shades
Of leaves and blossoms, shooting from the branch.
Head tilted with an ethereal gaze, her white and sky-blue
Crest, merges into a kaleidoscope of beauty, that stuns my Heart.
It is spring and a shimmer of rays, glitter from the background.
The song-bearer holds my gaze as I stare … a sweetness
Pouring into my core. I envisage the charm of rainbows,
Emerging from the heavens, as my soul whispers, to the Light.

"The beauty of birds are unfathomable.
They have a way, like magic, which is endearing to the Heart.
Their main strength lies in freedom,
Which is no less than the quintessence of the soul." -Manatita
