Angry bird

Angry Bird.

On a lamp post, early morning
Shrieking bird sends out a warning.
Crest all raised with angry face
He looks at me with much distaste.

He be a pink and grey Galah
He's saying "stay right where you are".
He’s screeching giving me what for
He's an angry bird, and that's for sure.

Peter, 11 March 2014. Nature
For Giorgio’s contest. Impress me with a small poem.

    Sounds a bit like my chattering squirrels... who then beg for more goodies... Congratulations on the win.

    I love birds, even angry ones. They are more beautiful when fierce. Congrats on your win.

    She sounds like my Rotty Bear, it took me so long to train him, and he is still hard work. He's my best friend though. Thanks for your comments, my friend....Peter

    When nature is uneasy with us, humanity must step back and ask ourselfs, why?

    Oh I know why Larry. every animal fears human beings. We have made it thus with our cruelty. I appreciate your comments, my friend....Peter

    Me too Paul, so many of them. When I watch these parrots come into my garden they squabble nd carry on just like people. I appreciate your comments, My friend...Peter

    Wow, that was a fantastic short poem my friend! It's not always easy to write short poems! You want to say more and more to describe what it is you want to say, but alas it needs to be short, so confining! But I must say that I do enjoy writing the short poem when I go through those spells when I need to express myself in that way! I truly enjoyed reading your poem here this evening! What a exceptional piece, an angry bird awaits you in the morning! Yikes! Great Work!!

    Hi Russel, I have had that little ditty on my computer for about fifteen years. I was glad to have a chance to send it of to be read. I am very long winded and short poems don't sit well with me. I thank you for your kind comments, my friend...Peter
