and a feather fell to the ground

Beginnings

Patches of dappled light
play on branches, bunches of leaves
and eventually the dried leaf floor.

A blue green parrot
Dives headlong into this forest canopy
and with a flourish,
settles into the stage set above.

This landing flourish
-moment of landing
Feet meeting the branch
is quick and explosive

As blue green parrot
settles into place
one blue black feather
slowly winds to the ground

Where I’m sitting
Mmmmm,
could be a nice way to start a painting
