Sparrow and Canary

Look up in the sky; the Sparrow and the Canary

The Sparrow and the Canary met over a pond
They stared at their reflections and wondered upon
How the Sparrow saw yellow and the Canary saw brown
Here I write there story as the fly across town

It needs not flowery words nor delicate strokes
It needs not lengthy books nor layered cloaks
It is pure and true, and flies like the birds
It is earth, fire, wind and water in thirds

The mackerel sky tells their tale
The seven seas, the waves, the sand, the hale
All wildfires of the world burn in their passion
There resides the story, free of one nation

And here flies the Canary, in wing the Sparrow

  1. I want you to know and believe this fact that you, Moniba, you’re my favourite poetess. I’ve known you from such a long time, and trust me, you’re a beautiful soul who writes on stuff which isn’t mainstream. There are many who write on love and relationships, but you write on things which makes the reader to ponder. You don’t give a clear picture of everything, you like to hide a major part which triggers the thought to write down something. It’s not easy to know a person like you. In fact, there is no other person like you. You’re a phenomenal human being. Believe me. Keep writing. And you’re forever loved ♡
