Mac Adoo's Wings #23 Poem a Day

1 post in this topic

Mac Adoo's Wings

 

The excited stutter of simulated flight

creates an explosion

of moult-dust,

downy under-feathers

and one long, strong, brilliantly green quill

plucked in agitation.

 

The staccato flapping

causes the fall-out to drift

cloaking her corner of the room

to be captured later

by my tired Dustbuster.

I'm cheating, this is an old one that I want to archive here. My poem for the day are the haikus below written after reading this old poem and remembering...

 

she barks like a dog

when a stranger approaches

my watch parrot

~~jvg

loud barking parrot

standing sentry at the gate,

dogs enjoy night off

~~jvg
