I found a blue jay feather out back by the tree
you know, underneath the torch I lit for you
“How many torches do you have?” you said
“only one, that’s all”
“How does the flame go out?”
“I guess it will just go out by itself” I answered with a hint”
“But what keeps the flame burning?” you asked
“Fuel” you fool!

Blue Jay Feather on SaturdaySoul.comFinely tined feather
Not broken at all
Just skillfully removed and tossed
Into the dirt like a dagger
(in a brick wall)

Strange finding a feather under that torch
Removed like my love is for you
Yet ready to ignite by one single spark

But make no mistake about the feather
It was blue
