Parrot

I

am a bright green parrot hiding in the leaves.

You

cannot always see my brilliant colours.

I

am not tethered to a particular tree, leaf or twig.

I

do not shift according to your mood.

I

speak in swirls, but sometimes you only hear me squawk.

You

need not listen.

I

am no less lovely when your heart is closed.
