Suprabhat With Agnishatdal 25.4.16

the little birds
show up in flock
to hide in her thick
fortress of leaves.
Then the golden flowers
show up and cascade down her,
the bees and butterflies follow.
the key like seeds precede them,
and when they are dried
every bird in neighbourhood
show up for a bite (?)!

There is a gold-shower tree right by my brother’s window I never knew that they are bird magnets! Good that their thick leaves provide them with ample protection from ghouls that stalk them with slingshots, there is a group of three teenagers who go around killing birds ruthlessly in this neighbourhood, hope and pray karma will catch up real soon! Sorry for the stain of gray but can’t shake those ghouls off my mind since saw them killing one right in front of my eyes. These are the times when one longs for a gun!

Have a great day!
