On my window sill,
She sang sweetly night and day.
Ah! Birdie poem…

 

The sweet parrot singing the song on my window... A #Haiku! #Japanese #poetry Click To Tweet

This Haiku is dedicated to the dozens of parrots who come to my house in India, seeking food; mornings and evenings. They come pretty early in the morning. Sometimes everyone is asleep and that’s when they start hooting aloud to wake up the entire household; to tell us that the hungry brigade has arrived for its morning breakfast. Some sweet soul then wakes up and lays the groundnuts that are already waiting for them in jute bags on the verandah. This has been happening for years now. I’ve lost count of how many. There are couple who do not eat by themselves, and one of us has to take a groundnut and feed it in their beaks. Sigh… Talk about being pampered. But in a city like Bombay, to be privy to such love is a beautiful thing indeed. The featured image is one that I managed to click while the notorious one was still at it! I wrote an article on them some time back. You could read it here

A Haiku is a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five; traditionally evoking images of the natural world
