Fierceness of fitting viral fertility
Fierceness of fitting viral fertility
colorful feathers, add precision
to male conquest as to words
arrows directed at their mark
as beauty defines meaning
colors hidden midst cedar teak
hardwood enclaves, Quetzals
wait, their mating trains mingle
leaves entwined, the dance
will tease, whoo piercing cracks
appease, brilliant green heads
lost in mist, fog and boughs
as water falls “fu ferrro” flicks
the tail above bromeliads, subtle
whistle slices clouds, feathers lift
in liberty, shining, absolutely free.
