Bird's song


Every morning i see
birds are chirping
sitting in a queue

The chirping of birds
breakes the silence of nature
makes me awaken
for being engaged in life

I try to understand
chirping of birds
which is beyond my reach

But melody of chirping birds
reaches my ear, as if
nectar of heaven
being pour down in my ears
erecting fidility of my life.

    Bird's song is sooo sweet. It adds to the beauty of life. We hear it everyday, and it inspires us in a great way, though we cannot understand it. A beautiful writing here. Thank you Ramesh. (Report) Reply

    I think most of us are drawn towards birds chirping and singing on tree tops! Their pleasing melody greets us as we wake up to the light of day! Enjoyed! Thanks for your nice comment! (Report) Reply

    Birds excite me. They are pleasant to watch and melodious to listen. Your poem is beautiful. Kindly read my poems 'Bird's Lament', 'Birds Missing', and 'Building Bird Friendly'. Thank you (Report) Reply

    A feast for sight in the first stanza, and hearing in the rest of the poem...i recall wordsworth's The World, where he says
    the world is too much with us, late and soon,
    Getting and spending we lay waste our powers, a sordid boon...the reason of my recalling the lines from this sonnet is that we are so much into the problems that we miss the birds'chirping, the sun rising and setting,
    such scenes and melodies are really missed...it is a gentle poem! (Report) Reply
