'And This Year's Winner Is.....'...Who Cares? ....[birds Seeking Food; Very Short; Humour/Humor] - Poem by Bri Edwards

The sparrows line up for their TAKE-off
on twigs strong enough not to BREAK off.
The time is drawing NEAR....
for event of the YEAR.....,
when crumbs are thrown out from the BAKE-off.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

a fanciful idea. i like both crumbs and birds. i may have been watching sparrows finding bread crumbs or birdseed outside my apartment window with snow surrounding them.

    You didn't share your cake with me? ? Why? ? At least the birds enjoyed it I suppose which is fair enough. (Report) Reply

    This is a great musing, Bravo Sir. Great imagery and the hint of freshly baked cake. MMMMM (Report) Reply

    bread crumbs are thrown not only for birds but also to the human at different situations! what you see through your window is very spectacular! (Report) Reply
