The Blackbird and Me

A curtain of gossamer-

A backdrop of colour-

A garden of knowledge created-

The Goddess Selene-

She watched as I stood-

Surveying this theatre before me-


Helios arose-

He looked down with repose-

My branches stretched upward towards Him-

Seeking refuge in silence-

The Blackbird and me-

Joined feathers-

And welcomed Him join Us.



                              Inspired in the garden of my home as dawn broke

                             A solitary Blackbird came and stood by me.

                                       (It is said that Blackbirds represent knowledge).
