THERE’S A BIRD PERCHED ON A BRANCH HIGH IN A TREE.
WRITE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE BRANCH.
This sharp-clawed beauty
on the end of me. His
nails could use a clipping,
chipping away at my bark.
He has made this his special
spot. Must admit I am flattered
by his choice, and love to hear
his voice at break of dawn. When
he perches, he warms my old limb.
I am bathed in his colors
reflected by the sun.
