Hi, it’s Greenygrey. I’m sure you’ve been waiting to find out how Grey, Bonzo and Elle are doing in the Rainbow Valley all weekend.
We don’t want you to fall off the edge of your seats, so here’s the next thrilling episode, with the poetry and prose mix maybe mirroring Alice in Wonderland more than Wizard of Oz:
37. INDIGO BIRDS ARE INTUITIVE
We left the land of blue
without much further ado
I would like to tell you more
but fear the border was a bore.
Then off we did go
to the land of indigo
shown there by a dingo
who spoke our lingo.
‘Goodbye!’ We entered in one go
moving faster than slow
our expectations did grow
when we saw the land was low
so it was time to say ‘Long so, hello!’
to our good guide, Dingo Joe.
Indigo Birds on Indigo Mushrooms
As we walked through a lea meadow filled with indigo plants, two birds flew over our heads and landed on a couple of lactarius indigo mushrooms. I noticed that both birds had indigo plumage and three eyes.
As we approached their perches, one of the birds flung out its wings and chirped, ‘I am an indigo buntingcalled Ajna, and this is my friend, an indigobird called Chakra VI. We would like to welcome you to indigo. Our friends, we have been watching you pass through, and we hope you have been enjoying the indigo view. We believe you are looking for Black Footed Rock Wally B.’
‘Yes, that’s right,’ Elle replied, ‘we were advised of that by Croc Dundee.’
Chakra VI smiled, before singing to us: ‘Yes, my friends, we think you are nearing the meeting now. You will pass through the land of indigo in peace, but this is not the setting to encounter Wally B, that is as far as we can see. Please enjoy the rest of your indigo journey.’
With that, both indigo birds flew high into the indigo sky, and soon disappeared from view.
We did indeed continue through indigo in peace, and were soon walking amongst violet flowers that stretched for as far as the eye could see.
Ajna is the sixth chakra in Hindu tradition.
