the passage migrant returns
to remind us we are never alone;
Mother Nature gives in abundance
Mr Fieldfare grumpily preaches
invest in our planet!
backstory: To state the obvious, it is indeed April. I know this because the fieldfare is back, and I’m grateful for the chatter in my backyard. In the mornings, I listen to bird song homophonics and try to transcribe what I think I’ve heard. This past Friday, I think the thrush was saying “invest in our planet!” Perhaps, because it was Earth Day. 🙂
And, on my favourite poetry podcasts, The Poetry Magazine Podcast has been my staple ever since it started. Badilisha Poetry X-Change; an online collective of African poets is more than a poetry radio but a movement… And I’m also loving The Slowdown. Hope this is enough poetry to brighten your days.
Enjoy the season!
