Birds On Electric Wire - Poem by Indira Renganathan

Wired above poles two
Swaying in gentle breeze
Perched by a row of birds on
Sparrows, tailor birds
Tweeting, screeching, caressing
Enjoying on a spree of joy
Ofcourse nonmatching crows too
Raucous in a near distant row
Unaware of my heart's speed
In cold sweat of a stringing devil
Dancing in execution-style
Monished atonce but my dear heart
Trickled my nose to sneeze
Puddled my legs to skid against
An auto-riksha's sonorous horn
Alarmed birds flapped away
Caged in my relief

    a dangerous site we see here...even human who know the dangers become victims...the birds may think that man has made a lovely parking space for them...excepting the gauge
    what has man really made for them (Report) Reply
