1971


mockingbirds flutter
from the gate to the neem tree
ever so playful

the swaying neem leaves -
a mockingbird has sat in
and is now long gone

Revisit
picking spanish thyme
in the afternoon coolness
the mocking bird's skip

evening sun
mockingbird next to
plumeria

tropical mockingbird
under overcast clouds
a new week ensues

Blog hopping today at
Carpe Diem Special (2nd guest) Kala Ramesh's "sunbirds peck"

the murmured prayers resonate
in tune with the birds

Mockingbirds are delightful singers, I'm so happy to have them in my neighborhood, too. Thanks for celebrating them today.
