amidst
the birds' persistent ringtones
two missed calls

  1. This made me smile, we have one bird in the garden who sounds just like our mobile phone - I keep going to answer it! :-)

    Another nice observation.

  4. I really like this. Reminds me of one I wrote a while ago:

    answering
    my cell phone
    a tui

    A tui is a New Zealand native bird who learns new songs each year by listening to each other, and in recent years they have started to learn cell phone ring tones. They have amazing calls - two voice boxes gives them some range!

    Anyway - this is a lovely poem once again. Hope you don't mind me adding one of my own.
