A Sonnet for Bluetits

You arrived at the beginning of me,

a life spent so lonely in quarantine,

bobbing in the breeze so effortlessly,

bubbles pop blue like the sky and the sea.

I watch you come in twos and threes, loved up

in ruffled up feathers and yellow smiles;

swallowing the sunshine, golden syrup,

before drifting upon the wind for miles.

And I desire to be as light as you;

worries held in the smallest of pockets,

wondering if life could ever be so true,

or if I could keep it safe in lockets.

       You arrived at the beginning of me;

       breathing a lullaby of being free.
