lady bird
hidden in plain view behind thin veneer
masked for safety’s semblence
glitz and decorative pap

it doesn’t take much to fly away in
interior gardens richly responsive

how deep does inquiry dip on
jetstreams like visions
bobbing and frisking fluffy clouds
pulling the covers on turquoise skies

grounded all the while in
avian or pangolin’s cousin
pecking or tickling the cracking heart

Lady Bird is a unique original mono print, created in acrylic paint on a gelli plate, then hand embellished and finished with ink and color pencil.
