Poetry for the birds



raindrops on leaves
scattering of silver hues
sky is a
flight of sparrows
siege of herons

sunlight on trees
flickering of curry-fire
sand is a
gaggle of geese
muster of storks

waves against shore rocks, 
white froth with solitude
unlaced, blue strings blue
i am good 
in company of birds

  1. Sometimes birds can be one's BEST company, I think, especially those who sing pleasant songs!

  10. An interesting imagery, Grace, which you paint, in your poem. Can feel myself, sitting lakeside, let Nature thrive, around all me.

  11. I love your use of "siege," especially. And OH, this:
    "white froth with solitude
    unlaced"

  12. The Company of birds implies a connection doesn't it and I like that notion. Well done Grace, hope you are doing well today...

  13. Wee have too many starlings in our town, who gather on power lines & crap on cars. While at the WA coast, I'm always impressed by how successfully the crows bully the gulls.

    There is a sense of peace and harmony among chirping sounds. One can experience this in a bird park. Rightly so Grace!

  19. You paint the most peaceful scenery with words. I love what you did here...
    "sky is a flight of sparrows..." and "sand is a gaggle of geese..."
    The ending really touched me. I find so much serenity in bird watching.

  20. Very peaceful. And what a picture!

  21. I like the company you keep. And the verses you write.

  22. your piece tells me birds have souls,
    meant to be suckled...
    for they are nourishing...

    I find them to be heralds, harlots and honorable
    company...from the eye to shine spying divide watchtower caws of the ravens and crows...to these spill forward coveys of partridges in paraded seasons of low to the ground chaos...

    and such wonderful smelling paints you've used...

  23. I love this line: "flickering of curry-fire"

    And the last stanza.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am enthralled by "flicker of curry fire." What a fabulous description!
    A very good read indeed......but I don't think I shall ever look at a campfire in the same way again.......that red orange is indeed the color of curry! Love it!

  25. I really like the flow of this and the imagery it invoke as I read it.
