Birdsong: A depiction of my poem of the same name, featured below.

A Birdsong....

The rain has ceased,
Finally, a break in the clouds
I spread my wings to find
A new world, looking down

Rain drops on grass blades
Diamonds shine bright,
The treetops ablaze
With a peridot light.

The meadows and the brooks
Shimmer red-gold now,
I swirl and twirl around
Heart bursting with wow !

I call to my mate platypus
Telling him with my song,
’Look! The Sun is bathing
In our Billabong!’ 

Veena Merchant,
