Premium Member A Lull
Oh, a lull of stillness, such soothing calm and tranquility,
I have fallen into eternity to a lullaby-
of little birds twittering, chirping, singing above my grave. 

Among the rows, rows of graves and graves and quiet stone statues,
different birds make their...Read More

To Kill a Mockingbird is both a young girl’s coming-of-age story and a more nebulous production about the reasons and consequences of bigotry and discrimination, examining how good and evil can coexist within a particular community or an individual. Scout’s...Read More

A tree carved into the brazen edges of light
is the color of dark and cloaked with virgin snow.
Its fingers clasp an afternoon moon 
in the chilled blue of the sky. 
The color of the milk that squirts from the teat...Read More

Caged Rainbow
A Northern Australian waterhole; 
here a trapper finds his goal.
One finch to surely catch my sight 
are Gouldian’s with colours bright.
Blacks, blues and greens; a purple breast. 
Yellow with white below the vest.
What shame I own wanting to show -...Read More

Divinity is to me
 the connecting link,
 the evolution of energy.
 and love, likewise,
 the dissolution of separation,
 the current between gaps,
 the transfusion of forces,
 creativity unbounded.

 Out for a stroll,
 I am caught up in
 three heavenly visions:

Tiny finch you land with a beakful
of nesting material spinning 
a pretty crimson tail 
I am motionless, considerate of
any mishap that might interrupt
or cause you to reject my presence

I watch your numerous returns
where with lightning quickness
you successfully organize

And I Barely Heard the Finch

Like a child pulling on its Mother’s dress,
And like the child, “Do you want to talk to me,
Do your little chirps mean more than seed?”

Free you fly through the dawning skies,

Quazi Johirul Islam

Backyard birch has bloomed a green umbrella
Two white doves peeping from mid branch above
Gray squirrel searches land to seedling love
A red handkerchief spoils the glabella.
Bullnose stones offered her cold and hard lap
Wind strokes the lush hair of mid-august-land

Gold Finch Had Gone
Gold Finch Had Gone

What we did was find ourselves flinch,
When we had smelled all of the stench; 
All so terrible, 
And unbearable; 
Gold finch had gone all over the bench.

The match was lost.
Oh sure, Paine won the toss,
But guess what?

He sent them in.
Flat track, no spin,
Batsmen's big grins.

There was once a young man called Timothy Paine,
Who had the motto "No Paine, No Gain",
But unfortunately,
He found out speedily

to wrap it’s chain around a tree
a tree that held a frightened cat
I knew that this would be a cinch

Spring in your step
If eager finch in flocks through hedges sow, 
they burn with crimson blaze on country lanes;
yet look like flaxen ropes that twisting, flow. 
This could be me when summer sings refrains. 

If darkened lakes with troubled waves reflect

Mrs. Crane and Mrs. Finch,
meet at the corner store,
where they like to gossip,
before their shopping chore,

Mrs. Finch to Mrs. Crane,

Premium Member Watching From My Kitchen Window-JQ
Red robin searches for worms
Goldfinches out in the storm
Hummingbirds flutter about
A red squirrel chirps and spouts

Worms near wet feathers of red
Storm drops on hummingbird's head
About, a finch lands on seed
Spouts from red squirrels with greed

Heaviness painfully throbbed your beating heart,

RARE BIRD

Sitting outside my window
a Black-throated Finch is there.
This little bird now is on show
seldom seen, could become rare.

hoping he'll stay for some time,
seldom seen, could become rare,
pecks at a worm to dine.
