Startle

 

Foggy winter morning,

Three green Bee-eater birds,

Sit in silent contemplation,

On the cables,

Outside my bedroom window.

 

 

With sleepiness in my eyes,

I wake up worried,

About pending tasks for today,

Mind misted in yesternight's dreams,

I open the window,

And Startle them.
