For Ray (Birds Of A Feather)

Ruined feathers catch more glitter-
Raining from the trees like chocolate-
Other birds on higher branches,
Birds that thrill the skies with color,
Shake the glory from their feathers,
Miraculous feathers that lift them high
Above sad birds on lower branches
Begging for a bit of reflected glamour
Birds that fill the nights with their cries
Waiting to move toward a pre-determined dawn.

(A birthday poem for my friend @RayOnativia. And no, it doesn’t have some deep meaning. I began with some phrases from http://www.writingfix.com and followed where they led.)

    Ramona! I am so touched by your poem. Not only is it beautifully written, but to be the inspiration of such a piece is beyond words. Thank you.
