Goodnight show

Goodnight show

Fountains gurgle songs of laughter
As the breeze joins in the song
Then they come, those big pink parrots
They arrive in quite a throng
As silence greets the song of evening
How it echo’s in my being
The sun makes for to say goodnight
What a lovely sight I’m seeing

Green parrot drifts into the garden
He is looking kind of wary
He knows Galahs will see him off
These pink birds they can be scary
When they gang up on this parrot
Who really only wants to eat
He makes a kind of trilling note
That makes the silence very sweet.

Galahs they eat, and then depart
To the comfort of the trees
Protected from the predators
Where they will retire at ease
Green parrot knows that now he’s safe
So he heads towards seed tray
And then he too takes to the treetops
As the night farewells the day.

    This sounds like a great show to watch. I love parrots. My mom used to own one, but he died. Thanks for sharing... Lucilla

    Hi Lucilla When the parrots come in my garden to feed it is really nice, We Have six different varieties in our vicinity, but they make one hell of a noise. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....peter

    There are so many awesome places on Planet Earth, as there are so many talented Poets on the Soup. One doesn't need to visit everywhere, not when words can paint in our minds of where their writing about. So loving your poetry Peter, and the images you paint. Simply delightful to read, James :)

    Watched a similar scene recently, but with a flock of birds, I have not seen before, and a loan threatening Magpie. Great words mate, on a turbulent day, they have relaxed me.
