The island seems tilted
as if it will go bottom up
trees under water roots
on top

where do they roost
now branches are gone

roots though interesting
observed above ground
belong below 
leaves need to be on top

beautiful homes
for nests and eyes
not to mention oxygenation
I chant for rectification

the island not yet tilted
I observe nests of birds
hear Great Blues squawk
in guttural tones  

I watch their dance
wings aloft for balance
they gather twigs
bill to bill nest rises

I wait for chicks 
hope for fertilization
but already this nest
appears tilted

  1. I see this tilted island through your eyes. Love the way you see things of nature.
