any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
Tragic the way we are encroaching upon their livelihood
Very powerful, Sumana. Your poem reads like a poetic observation of Nature, until one reaches the last lines. Then the mentions of Apocalypse and Hitchcock chill our bones.
Life can be observed so well in the freedom of birds. There is a real mirror of how we are meant to live, in the way birds are provided for.
Mother Nature cannot always be understood. This situation sounds very eerie really..especially with the mention of Hitchcock's birds.
everyone finds a way to survive!
We have herons nesting in our area as well and they do not seem to always choose to be near water--and yes those croaky voices! And who can predict what nature will do? Thanks for posting this.
Mother nature kind at times and harsh at times. Beautiful poem, Sumana
A compelling nature sketch tinged with a bit of dark irony. Well done, Sumana!

Beautifully written poem, Sumana. A very timely reminder about what we are doing to our environment and how it harms the other living species we share the planet with.
