The Birdwatcher

By Cristina A. Montes

I know these streets by species of birds:
Here, the sunbirds suck nectar from flowers,
There, the shrike perches on a tree,
Here, the egrets nest in the empty lot
Where vegetation has gotten wild,
There in a tree a flowerpecker sings.

Here is my favorite street,
With the tree in whose lush branches
The black-naped orioles hide
And whistle to each other
As I pass by and linger,
Hoping to espy
Their bright yellow plumage which gives me joy
At seeing a village bird
So cheerfully colored.

That was long ago,
When walks could be taken,
Before the virus forced us
To lock ourselves inside.
Meanwhile the orioles
Still whistle to each other
And I can still hear them
And I wonder if they miss me
For surely I miss them –

These days, only bright yellow birds
Whistling to each other
Can cheer me up.

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not
    sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Thank you

    Thanks for your strategies. One thing really noticed is that often banks plus financial institutions know the dimensions and spending patterns of consumers plus understand that plenty of people max outside their cards around the trips. They correctly take advantage of this real fact and then start flooding a person’s inbox plus snail-mail box by using hundreds of no interest APR credit cards offers shortly when the holiday season closes. Knowing that when you are like 98% in the American general public, you’ll get at the one opportunity to consolidate financial debt and switch balances towards 0 rate credit cards. onnmlop https://headachemedi.com – headache drugs list
