A Little Blue Bird


A little blue bird
Greeted me this morning
I recognized him at once
My beautiful old friend,
My only source of solace
In the gloomy days of last year.

I smiled and said him a 'hello'
He studied me for a while
Then cooed blithely; his happiness palpable
"What makes you happy, little bird?"
"Your smile that is shining in your eyes
I see you've risen above pain, little human
Finally outgrown those who've hurt you."
We gazed at each other for a minute
Silently revering our bond
I blew a flying kiss
He cooed once again and flew away.

A little blue bird
Has a piece of my heart
Perhaps he is from some fairy tale
Carrying some pixie dust 
Meeting him on new year was pure joy.
