A Tribute To A Sparrow


We love you
For more than one reason
For your determination
In trying to stay
Against all odds
A mind-set so resilient
To fly and fight your way
In a human jungle
Keep it going
Our avian friend
I hope you succeed
To retain yourself
All you need
Is a little corner
Our mindless structures
Have little to offer.
In the past…
You made our house
A home
Perched on a tree
Or a plant
Waiting for a spillage
In our courtyards
Have we broken
A chain?
To snatch your grain?
We have stopped
Seeing you…
Our dwellings rise
But so, must we
So that you live
To fly and fly!

Comment Madhavi Godavarthy ji.Thanks.It's a very nice poem tribute to "Goarya bird" who dwells near our houses and trees,a very innocent bird,but alas! it is disappeared these days due to construction of packed houses.There no place to make nest to live there herself & lay eggs.So Very Sorry I am.
