Ring of Noise and Green of Colour

by MuffinLad

MuffinLad A heartfelt piece, about the family bird.
Created after his passing day.
Ring of Noise and Green of Colour
I was left speechless that day
I didn't see it coming

The shock of knowing, hit hard like a sledge hammer to the gut
The reality sunk in finally, blew down a thousand trees, like matchsticks in the barren desert

Still I brought myself to march forward, still I continued my routine
Life has its purpose and meaning, for everyone and everything, which resides in a colourless, blue globe

Although he was green? He was rarely seen, for what he really was! A misunderstood creature of beauty, sound and curiosity

I remember those eyes
Two black voids, side by side, yet filled with life

A spectrum around his neck, of cherished rainbow, printed on the surface of a delicate paste

But most of all, I remember how he loved to fly
Free to be himself, always...

    @Teapot It's fine. I was really upset at first, but the poem I did.
    Eulogy. Was a great memento for him.
