Default For You, Calypso

It has now been just over a year since my dear Yellow-Crowned Kakariki, Calypso, flew into a window and died. His death happened on the 8th of July, 2012, and was probably one of the worst moments of my life.

For some weird reason I was inspired to get out my paints today and with them managed to complete a project that I wanted to start almost a month ago but never had time.

Here it is, My dear Calypso, painted on watercolour paper with Acrylic paints. It may not be perfect but that's not the point. It also looks a little funny because the light is shining on it and the camera was not quite on the right angle when I took the photo:

I'd like to say thankyou to anyone on the TalkBudgies forum who comes to this section and helps people who are struggling with the grief of their pets loss.

And just for my lovely bird, here is Calypso's Poem which I have managed to memorize off by heart:

A nightmare I'm stuck,
A bad dream,
A deadly trap,
An unwanted stream,
Through out the air,
Into the skies,
Too many clues how,
But not enough why,
Shadowy days,
Tend not to end,
But when will this,
Ever mend,
When light pours,
Streams through windows,
That's when mourns,
Happen most,
For years to come,
I will never forget,
The death of Calypso,
My dear loving pet.


My poor bird. I miss/ed him so much that I even wrote a song for him on my Glockenspiel called Calypso's Lullaby.

Thankyou all for having the effort to read this and thankyou yet again for reading all these posts.

That's a really nice tribute you did for Calypso. I'm sure he knows he was much loved and had a happy life with you. Always cherish the good times you had with Calypso, he will always be in your heart.
Rest in peace, Calypso.

Hopefully when the picture is completely dry I can scan it using the printer so that it will be on the right angle and stuff. Thankyou everyone yet again.

To of owned such a loving, trusting bird as you have done is to feel the special bond between two living beings. Nobody can ever rob you of your memories and that special thrill when your baby responds to you and only you. rest in peace calypso and may I say you are a very talented artist

I find it to be a lovely thing to send messages to those of us who have had to say a "temporary" goodbye to our beloved friends, we will meet again someday by Rainbow Bridge so in the meantime hold on to your lovely memories.

I'm so sorry for your loss of beautiful Calypso.
I know he is waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge and is happy for the time he had with you here on earth.

What a lovely tribute to Calypso, the poem and the painting. He is watching over you now, saying, "Thank you for all the love and good care." May you always think of Calypso and smile.
