Superb Blue Wren

Superb Blue Wren short poem


Australian songbird Blue Wren
Uses secret passwords
As an identification to their offspring’s.
The fact is that the mother bird teaches
The chicks when still in egg form
A special song that they remember
When they are born.

When one is hatched he uses the song
In their calls to be fed.
This is to prevent identity theft by others
Which are cuckoos…we know the cuckoos
Are parasite’s and they lay eggs in other birds nest,
The Blue Wrens use a ‘parent-specific password’
Similarly to their own young, and thereby
Detect foreign cuckoo nests.

Mother Wrens taught their mates the password
Also taught their trusted helpers, by singing
A ‘solicitation song’ away from the nest.
‘In my own conclusion.’
Nature simply points out to human
What would be great for our offspring’s,
Perhaps brilliant idea that parents could teach
To use a secret word or a password
On their cell phones for their protection
In any dangerous interaction.

Myth Of Ocean Blue Eyes

Myth Of Ocean Blue Eyes long poem

Whispered names falling simply off lips, Freckles that ripple on skin, Azure eyes that flooded dreams. Eyes may capsize stable thoughts, Blindly wade into unknown waters, Not knowing awaiting dangers. A siren’s melody put in a trance, A map to

When the bloodshed starts at the doorstep of solemn silence, give me a lone engagement with the invisible to unchain the split heart. I will take away the pain from home and come back in failing light when a star

Blue Whale

Blue Whale short poem

Meaninglessly traversing into the havoc of vanity With a fake logic justified, Leaving the players into the deathly chasm. A Blue bottle game denying the soul of life! Two and two they say ten, And it is their game playing
