by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

Bird of revival,
you have a hard work,
trying to maintain this symbol
over the world.

Bird of cyclic period,
let me suppose
your strange neighbors
(a river, a crane, a sculptor,
a chemical furnace ...)
are useful for you.

Bird of immortality,
I hope someday
I'll be reborn somewhere
near your lucida

as an insignificant variable star.
