Green Bird

Green Bird

First it was a green bird,
perched on my garden fence,
then it was a leaf.
The illusion I loved,
however it was brief.

Should have had my glasses on,
then it would have been plain.
It was a leaf and not a green bird,
a trick of my eye never to happen again.

What you see before you,
is there something more?
Can an illusion be the key
to a hidden door?
For me the key was a green bird
that really was a leaf,
made me aware of a beauty,
fair beyond belief.

If it were a green bird,
it would sing the note to fit the word.
I’d be in a different world,
if it were a green bird.

First it was a green bird,
then it was a leaf.
It was better as a green bird,
that is my belief.
