Birds of a feather (dedicated to Andrea)

by Michael   Nov 7, 2017


A Raven-ous croaking;
echoes of haunted
screeching!

Frenetic flapping-
they flock.

Clack and snap
at her twigs
of tranquillity!

they-
drooled from their
carrion minable!

Mocking.

Common-black;
dark humour.

SHOO! SHOO!

Scavengers of a
heinous pecking
order!

I prey!

Feathers ruffled.

For she is a mother-
an Eagle.

Now landed.

Huffin and Puffin..
they take to the sky.

An unfancied
flight!

and..

good riddance!

* Please not this is a re-post and slightly edited -
a dedication to Andrea and her family*

Also - not to be nominated. Thank you
Michael :)
