where are the Egrits' wings (syntuit)

by Mr. Darcy   Dec 10, 2020

in tree tops they perched
like feathered decorations

until they dropped Dead

    This is heartbreaking, especially the pictures/article you linked.

    Really enjoy whenever you write a syntuit. You always pack a lot into such few words, and "dead" being the last word leaves such a hollow feeling in one's heart.

    I’m very interested in Animal behavior and such occurrences. It’s so sad that the slightest changes in a climate could affect an entire population of birds.

    Very well written poem, it could mean more than it shows here!!
