This week for Colleen Chesebro Tanka Tuesday Poetry No 173 – Synonyms Only we are offered the prompt words ‘Idea and Fancy‘ and I have chosen the synonyms ‘Notion and Fondness’ for my double Etheree…
Double Etheree – Sunflower Seeds
on the fence
remained quite still
back lit by the moon
as it slid from the sky.
Briefly before the sun rose
his dark feathers would offer him
the gift of invisibility,
and chance to enact his clever notion.
This black bird had developed a fondness
for delectable sunflower seeds.
The source was very close at hand
newly scattered on the ground,
thrown by the evil witch
for favoured sparrows,
but not for him
who she chased
