Cute write about your bird. Animals can do the craziest things and either make us laugh or drive us crazy nice job

Only a human will tolerate that which drives them crazy and use the word beloved. Now I can tell my children they have competition. Great Haiku and best wishes to the bird.

I could not help it, that last line made me laugh! I have always wanted a parrot. I think they are so cool! Maybe you could introduce him to my mother and they could talk for days! SMILE.

Yeah, I love the little bugger. If I am ever in a bad mood he starts saying a bunch of off the wall stuff I can't help but laugh!

I have never owned a birds of any sort Amy, for when I was young I found out that I am allergic to them, sadly to all of the beautiful souls who have dander ! Yet, I had a Dr. for several years and he had a huge speaking white Cockatoo...it would not stop its long vocabulary,*smiles*...and there were those days when, I was actually sick...those days the bird appeared more like a meal than a decoration for the Docs. office ! I enjoyed this poem Amy ! TY james
