Caught in camera

A black bird and a red bird
were pecking on the same fruit
hanging on the topmost branch
of a tree. Seeing this
poets wrote poetry on scarcity,
fiction writers paged power play,
playwrights added colours of discrimination,
a painter’s doodle sensed
courtship beyond imagination,
reporters staged a cold war,
an ornithologist was simply amazed
at their ability to share,
while a photographer caught the parents
carrying food for their baby dudes.
