little bird


little bird
hidden away
in the leaves
of a giant tree
watching me
watching you
are you
as enamored
with me
as i am
with you
brave
little bird
holding your pose
for my camera
a stolen moment
in time
to cherish
and pull out
on a silent
winter's day
when
i recall
how i befriended
a kindred spirit
a soul mate
a precious
little bird
