GRACKLE
I love the grackles
with their sleek black shiny coats
Black satin in motion

They hop skip rest
On my wall, looking
with their side-placed eyes

Sometimes i hear
A sort of buk buk buk
I'm not sure really

Sometimes
I think it's chuk chuk chuk
But always, i know

There's a grackle on my wall
We meet eye to eye sometimes
in a friezed stare, in a dance of minds

  7. Black satin in motion. I like that and the entire poem. I also like the three puppies, who unlike me are ready for Carnival. Wish I could attend. But sure hope you enjoy, have fun and take a few pictures for us.

  8. Carnival is a few months away. Its is such a big industry that band launches take place quite early. Around now
    Glad you liked the poem. Thanks for dropping in

    They can be menacing if face to face in such an encounter.
