From the workshop: Ceramic Bird

Beautiful ceramic bird

In certain ceremonious song.

Ceramic, porcelain, strong.

Just like my grandma

Who I inherited this prized possession from.

I watch as you sit there still.

Orange eyes,  sunset bill.

Oh precious bird,

My cat can’t kill.

Crafted by hands

No longer seen

Apart from in a caliginous dream.

Quickly,  quietly I creep.

Silently dreaming,

Fast asleep.

Come to me

Come to me

Ceramic bird.

With your handsome colours

Soft, spoken word.

Don’t be afraid of the umbrous sky

Fly little bird

Fly, fly, fly.
