    Shadow Sounds like a talented parrot. Maybe you should put him on Americas Got Talent, American Idol or The Voice. LOL Thank you for the nice comment on my Storms poem.

    I have heard of the Scarlett letter but never the Scarlet Parrot with the mellifluous voice. This was a fun one.

    Well done Shadow. I wish he would teach our parrots to sing, All they do is squawk. But heir colours make up for it. Loved your Haiku....Peter

    I used to keep parrots Andrea they can be hilarious birds sadly due to age I felt it was unfair to have another which would outlive me most live 50 years or more glad you enjoyed it hugs
