POETRY FREE VERSE – FINE FEATHERED FRIENDS

FINE FEATHERED FRIENDS

Listen to the birds sing

Not in chorus or unison but a collision of sounds

Birds graceful dive in the air and ride air currents

 

Why the males are beautiful and females are dull astounds me

Guess it’s only fair since it’s the opposite with humans

Hard not to watch them with a sense of delight

 

 

 

Red cardinals arrive with a sense of superiority

Blue jays fight among themselves

Small finches, canaries, and unknown birds await their turn

And my favorite the tiny graceful hummingbird a feeder just for them

… A pecking order for sure
