Pink and Grey Galahs

I see a pair of Pink and Greys
They fly on by my way
They seem to be so filled with health
To me they do have so much wealth

They're so majestic in the sky
As I see them flying by
And when they land upon a branch
It really puts me in a trance

Trays of seed I have for them
On which upon they land
Such a lovely sight to see
I could almost feed them from my hand

I love to see them feeding there
As the seed these two birds share

G'day Vera... oh yes, galahs. If you want more of them; plant an almond tree. I don't think we appeciate the galah as visitors do. They see the soft pink and gray as unusual and beautiful whereas we have grown up with them... the galah is truly a beaut cockatoo and I can tell that you do appreciate them with your sonnet. Thanks Vera-Lindsay

Well done with this exquisite write, Vera! You have the same love for nature and its inhabitants that Peter has. Bird watching can be so satisfying...pity that some hunters/trappers are indiscriminate in what they go after. Have a lovely weekend. // paul

Robert my dear friend, thank you so much for reading this, actually the inspiration for this one came to me by looking on my shelf in my lounge as I have a pair of Pink and Greys sitting there, so not only do we have the real outside and a fake one in side, take care my friend..............Vera..................

Thank you so much Anne Lise, yes it is beautiful sitting having a cup of coffee and watching the birds, in fact at 2pm every afternoon we sit outside and watch the wild birds, my canaries and the gold fish in our large pond and with it being spring they are all chasing each other getting ready to breed, it is beautiful, take care my dear friend....................Vera...........

Jan my dear friend thank you so much for the lovely comment, we are so lucky to be able to sit and watch them feed and fight, we sit outside in the sun with a cuppa. and just watch them, they can get quite angry with each other..Take care..............Vera..........
