Bird’s Watch

The cock crows
Cock a doodle doo.
I am up in bed.

In my study, while
revising my writing
hear the Cuckoo’s call.

Coo, coo it caws without
break. Distracted,
I bang the window,

As I walk down the aisle
to collect the news papers
a raven caws in a croaked voice.

Placing the paper on the sideboard,
the love call of the peacock
holds me for awhile.

Opening the backyard.
the sparrows while pecking
chirp incessantly.

The day has begun well.
Birds and I work together.
Our portfolios well in order
