Tiny Feathers

blue hummingbird of love
Your feathers I gather
Tiny feathers you dropped
I’ll clip on to my makeshift wings
flying lessons for home-made dreams
On fresh mornings when lights appear

I swear, I’ll have wings
I’ll put on rings of silver
I’ll fly closer to the sun
To find you closer to the sun

Wings will hold the weight of the earth
My body is gravity-bound
Fly away and disappear
And high above will not be found
I know the earth is just a ground
You left traces in my mind
I wish your presence were more than a sign

I swear, I’ll have wings
I’ll put on rings of silver
I’ll fly closer to the sun
To find you closer to the sun

If you are truly a bird
What do you see from above
A still life of human longing
Or honey orchids growing old
but blue bird, aren’t you half-man
I heard you were once a dreamer
Jealous of tiny creatures
who could easily seek and find

fly away, I made my wings
Wings I took from of you
If it wasn’t for the feathers you dropped
I would not know that to be human
Is to dream that we’ll fly for love
And do impossible things
Life isn’t really what is seen
It’s the perfume of happiness, in dreams.

I swear, I’ll have wings
I’ll put on rings of silver
I’ll fly closer to the sun
To find you closer to the sun
