An ode to my breakfast guests..



There was a dove
and a parrot
Who arrived together
to have it
A breakfast
 of seed
Shared peacefully
indeed
Was better than 
eating a carrot..    
Grace Forde.. with apologies :)

Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...p.s. if I made you smile, my work is done :)p.p.s. and tres important, Happy Bastille Day celebrations
mes amis français, enjoy...

  5. You did indeed make me smile. Great little poem to go with two gorgeous photos. You are so lucky to have those simply amazing rainbow-colored lorikeets visiting you. That dove is kind of unique too. It's a different branch of the breed than the ones we have here.

  6. Wonderful to see these characters together in harmony. The lorikeet colours seem to highlight the more subdued veauty of the dove.

  7. Birds of a feather flock together.
    But if you don't feed them
    They will eat all your heather...

  18. Wonderful to have such colourful birds in your garden! As for your poetry, probably the least said the better! Mind you, what else goes with parrot? Tarot? I think not!

  19. Nice couple, Grace !
    I want the parrot :))

  20. Nice try Grace! I wouldn't have imagined a parrot and a dove would sit side by side. I have lots of doves "living" in my lemon tree.

  22. How I love the birds you photograph and show us. Love this pairing!

    Caged Bird
    BY MAYA ANGELOU
    A free bird leaps
    on the back of the wind
    and floats downstream
    till the current ends
    and dips his wing
    in the orange sun rays
    and dares to claim the sky.

  23. What a contrast between these two!
