Bird and Flower

Why did the bird perch over the same flower?

suckling deep inside

only to return in a few seconds

and ignore other dazzling beauties nearby

 

The bird visited everyday

squealing shrilly at competition

chasing feathered companions

 

The bird returned even after

the flower faded away

nibbling the stem

and pecking the thorns furiously

calling for the flower piteously

with its blood-soaked beak
