Bone & Keratin

I imagine you in the Costa Rican rain forest
peering down the magnificance of your beak,
the radiance of your plumage twinkling
tree-stars in the mist, your strident calls
reverbrating between the breasts of mountains,
rolling through lush valleys of verdant loam.
As a human you would be an artist preening
before a canvas, sweating blues & greens,
weeping purples and reds,rolling through
multi-hued sheets brushed with forested
liquid, face lifted above the treetops,
fingers brushing stars.
