Chads among the Acorns

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

Chads among the Acorns

 

 

birds gossip with the morning rain

Cardinal cloaked in red

somewhat vain

is the subject of a chirping group

 

who turn away in fits of dissension

as the worm twists and turns

from his tongue

 

there is a Blue Jay stalking the truth

in bandied silence he observes

 

knows once the rain hesitates

he will find his tree

to roost,

and the other birds will become silent

 

watching

as the worm optimistically

gives himself up as sacrifice

This is a fantastic write! it shows that a cogent bird tweets only to drop the bombs of truth and logic. It lives its life with these bombs which work really great in shutting the chirp of vain birds up. I see blue shining really bright in the crowd of reds. I'm visualizing the stunned face of Cardinals looking at the Blue Jay. This is a really fun read.

thank you for your kind review, moog-drika,

Beautiful nature scene. However your blue jays and red cardinals have me thinking this poem has a political slant. Maybe it's about time that worm well and truly turned. Particularly fond of blue birds.

You are most welcome my friend!
I love the colors here- primal blue and red in some type of combat. Yet the conflict is only resolved after some type of sacrifice. Is that how all conflicts are won?
