Chandelier lights.

Bars of Gold

Gleam under the sparkling chandelier.
Embellished with
Rubies, Sapphires, Pearls and Diamonds.

Luxurious, Magnificent.

Beautiful Bird
Variegate feathers
Like the richness of jewels upon
the Bars of Gold.

‘What a Life!’
the sparrows sigh.

Gaze out,
Wretched, Trapped.
Eye of desire,
of Defeat.

Eyes close.

Feels the gentle wind caressing the wings
Rainbow melts into the feathers
Kisses the fragrant air
Soars through the sky
Bluer than sapphires.
Sees the sun above
Brighter than Bars of Gold.
Breathtaking, Exhilarating.

Eyes Open.

Blinded by
Resplendent Rubies
Sparkling Sapphires
Precious Pearls
Desirable Diamonds.
Once Again
Behind Bars of Gold.

What a Life.

Chandelier Dims.
