Wagtail In Its Spot - Poem by Raj Arumugam

wagtail sits
on sparse branch
ample space and clear all round
wonders outward
feels within
content in its place
satisfied with its lot;
a worm today
and some seeds in the evening;
a quite and safe spot at dusk
and rest and sleep when it is time

(based on painting Wagtail by Seitei (Shotei) Watanabe 1851-1918)
