It takes a ray of light
and a dull brown Passerina cyanea becomes an Iris Blue
as the structure of his feathers diffracts light
so the primary color blue appears.
When I glimpse an Indigo Bunting,
I feel the stable calm of his cyan blue mixed with mystical purple,
Would it act more beautiful? Improve its & our perceptions of it?
It’ll take some serious sunbeams.
