Joy

I’m not sure why or how
all these beautiful bird creatures
fly and hover
for me.

Matters not as they literally
fill me with a child-like
joy.

Looking out onto
this backyard takes me back
to my days in the
South.

Bluebirds, jasmine and
honeysuckle,
flowing freely.
Lifting me up
and away
to a safe place.

Where memories
are not haunted
but pretty.

As I think of eating
coconut
with a best friend.
