Nest (Another View)

Birds nest in the guttering
nesting in the guttering

Above my head, by the window ledge

a family of birds is living on the edge

living in a nest in view of my eye

occasionally searching for food do they fly

Waking me up with their earliest call

transcending the windows and solid brick walls

flying to treetops through clouds in the air

and searching out berries without a care

A tale of life down the pits – and a very clever bird

canary

Canary (P) Brian F Kirkham 2018

They closed all the pits

they say it wernt safe

we were digging out the props keeping land up

They said

The Gas were strong

and sending our mates

off to dreamland

forever

But as well as hammer and pick

we had a new trick

up our sleeves

to look out fer stuff we couldnt see

Bright little bird , wi

Feathers o’ yellow

Chirped away – when safe, and quiet when not

Clever little fellow

Harmonious

Harmony

DSC01167

It starts with the wind gently rushing through the green leaves

feathered maestros awaken in nests and trees

no electronic devices needed here

as chirping chums share news around the bird bath

and as they fly into the morning blue

the song begins to take shape

a tale of a glorious blue sky moment

twittered by the chorus that’s come together

and are residing on the roof to perform
