Chase the blues away

Bird in a tree, Paul Roos Park, Johannesburg
I spotted this little bird sitting in a tree at the Paul Roos park in town today when I walked up to photograph the flowers. I think he goes perfectly with the line from this ee cummings poem I read for the first time the other day:

I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance

I’m still trying to decide whether I want a tattoo with writing, and where, and which cummings poem line I would use…this is one is a strong contender if I ever decide to get it done.

  1. Ive always wanted a tatoo that says God is love but I always end up chickening out because I dont have moral support πŸ˜€
