Pictures of endemic birds in Mauritius, and first verse of this poem handwritten on a piece of torn paper with a bird perched on tropical plants.

Flirting Birds

Flirting Birds

Two birds flirt
Far from cages
And menaces that lurk
Underneath bridges

They spread their wings
To go hide behind clouds
Listening to the singing wind
Rhymes of love escape their mouths

Such fascinating birds
Omens of goodness
Wings with curves
Love of the goddess

Magnificent flying things
Celestial and wild creatures
Carried by gigantic winds
That single egg hatches

One bird flies away
Freely spreading its wings
In the dreamerly skyway
Looking for another bird 
Soaring in clouds above.


Today we celebrate Bird DayšŸ¦; and as I love birds very much, for their wings and carefree style inspire freedom and insouciance, I decided to publish this little poem.
