I Love Birds

I love watching pigeons, as they

swoop down in flocks, to

enjoy the pleasure of food grains.

It’s a joy to see them flutter

with their coloured feathers

puffed out.

A few pigeons visit me daily,

and sit on the outer edge

of the balcony, waiting for

their treat.

I feed them every day

before I leave for work.

In joy or in sorrow, I have found

solace in watching these birds.

I have a habit of feeding black seeds

to birds and honey to ants.

I used to carry bread and seeds

for the birds every day.
