To snag the bluebird
of unadulterated joy
that’s singing around
your corner if only you
you could stop and listen.
No matter your age,
you always have room
to let more love in if
you throw caution to
the wind, and embrace how
a Flamingo flaps its wings,
cocks its head and stands
on a foot eating upside
down assured of its beauty.
Red blooming roses with
an intoxicating scent lay
dying to be puckered up
and kissed like a virgin.
You’ll be on your way
to a taste of happiness
you never knew before.
You finally learned to fly!
