Colibri for a girl

by Lepota Cosmo


Indigo and silk
Gentle breeze
Feathers torn
Among the paper flowers
Twigs and kestrel
Light plays chess
On your eyelashes
The child chooses
Between swords and hummingbirds
The girl blonde
The child chooses
Between sabres and pirates
Golden girl
While the piano plays
