Those Birds!

What a beautifully mesmerizing sight,
When the birds fly with might,
The fleet that flies fast,
The sequence of the steps very perfect,

From one corner to another with graceful swift,
Those beautifully colored birds flying in the vast,
Majestically painted canvas back ground,
None can bring them down with their shoots,

Of verbal canons of gunpowder blasts,
Let them fly in the glamor and enjoy the poignant air,
When I look at them with my eyes wide open,
What a beautiful sight that these drawn birds,

Pose to me all their entire life, not get tired,
I am looking for those wonderful hands,
That mixed the rainbow colors in the palette,
I may take those creative hands to my eyes,
To worship for painting the picture of birds, gorgeous.

    You paint a beautiful sight with words that are full of color and action.
    I can see you raising you hand to point as a flock spirals as if one entity.
    A poem that comes alive in me. (Report) Reply

    Let the beauty of bird flight be not left only in paintings and photographs.Let shooting be only with cameras and eyes. Thank you for a beautiful poem. Please also read my poems 'Bird's Lament' and 'Birds Missing' when you have time. Thank you. (Report) Reply

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
