Laugh Kookaburra


Snake hunting bird in silent trance 
Iconic outline on the branch 
As daybreak dies, with laughter, quiet 
You quell your deadly appetite 

Your searching eye from tilted head 
Has spied a rocky sun-warmed bed 
A silent slither from the grass 
A wary reptile dares to pass 

And you bark brown, have flown away 
For gumtops high to eat your prey 
You laugh - as if you laugh at fate 
It's true - considering what you ate.

    Another great write. Sublime imagery capturing a moment in nature wonderfully.

    I'm not familiar with different breeds of birds (had to look up kookaburra)... I liked the personality you gave it. The way you can so effortlessly connect yourself with nature is a talent worthy of envy... great poem!
