Erettai Valan

Last tinge of greens have cowardly fled the fields,
Flushed out; like the leftovers from the sink,
Holes go smaller but deeper, little mice on their heels,
Dry and damp at the same time, cracks appear in a wink,

Hues of Cadmium yellow have taken over the scene,
Stagnant mind; like the solid stream across the street,
Scissor shaped tail with dark shadows preen,
Twisting and turning in his flight, a rare tiny bee to eat,

Vandyke brown eye of the falcon observe him keen,
Fierce intent; little pocket size black dynamo he is,
Bushchats take courage; they slowly appear on the screen,
Twisting and turning, the Erettai Valan goes by in a whiz.

PS.Though Black Drongo's are common birds they are very distinct in nature, they are fierce competitors and guard their territory with their life. Many smaller birds benefit from their aggressive behavior towards bigger birds of prey. Erettai Valan meaning two tailed in Tamil.

I love poems that teach me something, Prasad.
And still it is a joy to read.
