Tweet tweet my birdie, tweet

Sweet sweet my birdie, sweet

 

When your heart does beat

For the love you meet

Give her your golden seat

She’ll be at your feet

 

Tweet tweet my birdie, tweet

Sweet sweet my birdie, sweet

 

Night night birdie.

In silence strums the solitude poet;

His words his strings, his pen his pick, his poem his song;

To be sung on stage by another, to an oblivious crowd.

He stands back stage.

Higher, higher, higher we go,

Swooshing through the clouds.

Up, up, up to the sun,

Zooming over seas.

Racing, racing, racing time,

Passing birds and bees.

Travel does tickle the little child in us.

Step away from his writing room.  And keep his door closed.  (But have his window slightly open to let in fresh air.)

Now keep it quiet, so that he can hear the voices inside his head.

He will write something great, he promises.

A masterpiece he will dedicate to you and to me.

One coin in the wallet.  Lingers inside the dark pocket.  Rolls to one side and back to the other.  And stays inside, idle.

One coin dropped into the piggy bank. Clinks and chinks against others.  Travels miles, travels a mile.  Crosses borders, crosses the street.

To save a man.  To save an animal.  To save a tree.

Don’t save the coin.

You can write.  After all, you have all the tools you need – words.

Words are all you need to write a story you want to tell.  Words are all you need to write a poem you want to rhyme.  Words are all you need to write a lullaby you want to sing.

And words are most definitely all you need to write a love letter you want to send.

Just write, and let every word be from your heart.
