About the Author

Bird of Paradise

Green,yellow, blue even
A bird
torn between love
 and hate.
Claws that
 could kill
A beak strong enough
 to break a broomstick.
Not knowing he
 was sick.
Jumped from his perch
 racing across the wood floor
 wings spread
  blood gushing from his side.
Not showing any weakness.
Died that night-
Buried the next.
Green, yellow blue, orange
 and a touch of red.
