Beating Heart Quivers

by Gypsy Blue Rose

beating heart quivers

on my hand gently and fast —

small painted bunting


Bye Bye Blackbird writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a 5-7-5 about any kind of real bird species.

a 5/7/5 is a poem similar to haiku but the only rule is the syllable count and format.

Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful and colorful birds is the Painted Bunting. Look for this small multi-colored finch at your bird feeder and around the edges of dense brush and thick woodlands.
Painted Buntings nest and breed here from the middle of April through September. Some may stay throughout the winter but most of our birds go south to Florida and to the northwest Caribbean islands. These birds are part of the eastern population that occurs along the Atlantic coast from North Carolina to Florida. A second western population breeds in northern Mexico to northern Texas and winters in south-west Mexico.
