The New Zealand tui [pronounced too-ee], is a delightful noisy bird that mostly lives in our native bush/forests. Sometimes referred to as the 'parson bird', due to its white throated collar, its calls are varied and delightful.
Having a dual voice box the tui is able to produce 'sounds that range from a loud and complicated mix of tuneful notes, interspersed with coughs, grunts and wh...

Why is it that when I'm surrounded by the most people,
I feel the most alone?
That when I think of the billions of other
I feel a pit in my stomach,
swallowing me up from the inside,
overpowering me with all-consuming darkness.
How can a single grain of sand
when it looks the same
as billions of others?...

I tell you
I'll love you no matter what.
I don't care what they think,
fuck their approval.
And yet I find myself,
Plagued with naive hope,
A bird plucking its own feathers
one by one.
Until all that's left
is an ugly mangled mass,
defeated by its own destruction.

Hello, said the tree.
Thank you for planting me.
I think I’m going to like it here.
I love trees, said the little boy.
And I love you.
You are a special tree.
All trees are special, said the sapling.
I will always be here
Watching over you and your children’s children.
How long can you stay here? How old will you get?
Will you live for ever and ever?...

The color yellow looks different when I look through your eyes,
As if the fields are made of emeralds decorated in butterflies,
And then I see pollen fly and descend to the wind’s singing
And embed themselves into beds’ sheets’ linen.
The coursing of dance mimics a river current
And I involuntarily admire your freckles and the rose of your cheeks like they’re sunbu...

Solemnities hero be already dead -
for she never lived, was never there,
Her favoured plunge had already
swanned to fantasy where meeting
minds were no longer chaste, nor
wanting loins expressing lions dare.
The citadels of spite remained as
peoples strewn in tatters – navigate an open

With every year's end - the advent marks the start of a new day,
as human kind we’re always growing wiser, furthermore, fully face to face with the task of taking baby steps toward a straight forward path —
It’s time to take a stand…
(With that being said: we really need to enjoy such a joyous occasion)
In an effort to boost morale; International Women’s Day should pronounce a two part holiday...

I would never question your narrative— as it be, figuratively.
Cheers to another year: it’s ever clear — our glasses never get drunk.
(for all intents and purposes) spirited twin flames pour out libations to a personal god
No half truths with you.
I idolize your third eyes outlook on life...
Our inner visions - seen to fruition - showcase infinite possibilities
Granted we share the same ...

For once I didn’t open my eyes
And flick on the screen
Scan the news, designed to make me scream.
Posts and pictures of people “seizing the day”
Each not so subtly saying
“Look at me look at me”
I poured coffee
With my first cigarette in hand
And looked at something ...
