Frequenters Of My Garden

I’ve known these two soul mates
For many a year – watched them fly
Against sunset backdrop – pallet of
Colour takes my breath away,

As they wing their way home,
Feathers black
Like darkest night –
Eyes mysterious as the cosmos,

They’ve had their share
Of my garden feast,
Hidden beneath blades of
Green and daisies bright,

A recipe of true delight
To see them plummet into land…
Then up they fly beyond trees
Surveying all they perceive,

Crows nest high
Daring others
To venture
Near –

Even largest of birds
Would not take the challenge,
As shrieks of Caw! Caw!
Display element of surprise,

Yet, I watch
Their sharp-eyes
And call of danger!
Prompt alarm,

Setting wings in motion,
Scattering plumage,
No plan of action…just
Frequenters in flight.

Well, as one who happens to love crows and has written poems about them, how could I not like this?
Many lovely images. Welcome to UKA.

I have frequenting Blue Jays. They lift my spirits each year. Loved your tribute in motion and color.
