Window Friends

20170620_094107

The hibiscuses open outside my window

They shutter and shake whenever the winds blow

They don’t mind or at least it doesn’t show

Sunlight and water is all they really know

 

The myna is perching in the cover of the leaves

Keeping watch, there’s no honor among thieves

Squawking he has something up his feathered sleeves

The fittest is the fattest is all that he believes

 

The butterfly flutters around waiting for her chance

Sweet nectar is only for those that choose to dance

It nourishes but for her it furthermore enchants

Little does she know she brings life to newer plants

 

The sun settles down another day comes to an end

Hibiscuses close, the myna sleeps, the butterfly will descend

Tomorrow is a new day and the sun will rise again

Bringing light and bringing life to my window friends
