Red Wolf Wordle 23

It is a miracle
how birds produce fluty trills
from their tiny lungs,
a swallow sings the blues
in fear of  long migration ahead                                                       .
and a peacock screeches punk rock
from the highest branch –
his version of a lovesong for his shining hen.
A bizarre blend of musical vibrations.

I took liberties with the case of  some of the words., and I had one or two left over.   You’ll find more wordle poems here

    A symphony of trills and thrills.


  2. I love changing the words up…it’s fun that way…I can nearly hear that boisterous peacock!

    Fun to think of the peacock as a punk rocker 🙂
    Thanks for your visit and kind words.

    Wonderful vibrations of bird song you did. The punk rock peacock got me most.


  5. Viv, I loved the peacock screeching punk rock! You’re right – everybody’s got their version of “the call,” and it’s amazing how many like-minded birds (and people) will answer! Thanks, Amy


  6. take as many liberties as you will, we love to read you.


  7. This is beautiful, Viv. “a swallow sings the blues and a peacock screeches punk rock” that is so right!

    Nicely done, Viv. And (btw) you’re supposed to ‘take liberties’ with the words. That’s the whole point of having fun with them. 😀
