in Trinidad from YouTube]
From the excitement of twittering beaks,
These bird songs telling, telling of skies,
Skies given in transition to feature shades,
Shades of grey, whittling into silvery salmons,
Tints of unbelievable yellows and pale pale blues
From the other whorl of dreams and fantasy,
Fantasy, believers craft in make-believe worlds,
To challenges senses, to look deeply into self,
For where else, does creation bud but within
Up from this place of erstwhile rest,
I came into today, tapping keys,
Keys black, on a silver keyboard, simply saying,
Saying, the morning which feathered friends
Declared; really is today.
