‘Pon my word, the consideration of clouds
is almost like hearing faraway crowds.
A murder of crows calling in the trees —
pursuing a hawk is not what it seems.
And a star or two’s twinkling dimly,
you’ve a grand gift of silence, so seemly,
that sudden talk’s an ejaculation
AKA blue jay’s squawking persuasion.
Purchasing a box of bricks for a child —
Constructing a bird’s nest, the gods beguiled.
As you’re growing up, always tell the truth. A cat is an inevitable sleuth.
Do not harm others and do not think YOU… A dog will bite off more than he can chew.
You’re NOT the most important thing on Earth. Magpies horde bright bits, for pleasure not worth.
You can, you should, look someone in the eyes. Will a rabbit contemplate the Sun Rise?
No better, no worse, certainly equal —
Living your life as if there is no sequel.
Examine a dragonfly’s history —
Scientists find its habits a mystery.
Long wingspan of a fossil dragonfly,
hints at a nuclear intense CHI.
Perhaps a dragonfly’s wings are crystal.
Thinking of such things makes me SO wistful.
This strange insect’s head is almost ALL eye,
only eating what is snags from up high.
To catch this odd “bird” sneak up from behind,
since that’s the spot where a dragonfly’s blind.
