My Perching Friend

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – For Your Consideration – Point of View

THERE’S A BIRD PERCHED ON A BRANCH HIGH IN A TREE.
WRITE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE BRANCH.

This sharp-clawed beauty
perches precariously
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.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
