I know not about thy ways …

 

you intrigue and tease

yet you comfort and please

with your timeless music in motion

 

from dawn to dusk, perpetual

and magnificent

giving to our little lives a potion

 

fuelled by desire for

power, or

lust for one another

 

fence-sitting , hopping

never really knowing

where you are going

 

beaks ever open, stroking

your young, cradling

your nests, waiting …

 

eternal, your days

I know not thy ways.
