parrot!

so colourful!

In honour of Cindy Loo, which posted the final episode today, here’s a parrot I drew a little while ago as a study for some of the birds in the story. Hope you like it and in case you haven’t checked lately – go read Cindy Loo! I love the ending!! There – it’s linked twice – you can’t miss it! 😀

UPDATE: This just in from Tom… and now there are three links to CLY!!

With wings outspread as if adorning
pavilions of the sky
the parrot swoops through golden morning
drawing every eye.

We stand below in cloaks uncoloured
awe-struck by nature’s clothes
that make designers look like dullards
filling racks in rows.

Behold the bird in all its glory
winging through the air
reminding all to read the story
hope to see you there!

    The bird’s wings kind of reminded me of this sort of bunting, frequently seen on speaker’s pavilions at political events in the States.
