a daily tanka — June 27

at the bird expo
a frenzy of flapping
cash in hand
beautiful plumage this one
hand-reared for wired skies

Image: It was going off at the “Bird Expo” at Berkeley (a suburb of Southern Wollongong) yesterday. Birds, kids, selfies with parrots, the sound of money and stories about seed mix and dried pawpaw tossed everywhere. This young blue and yellow macaw (Ara ararauna) was a long way from home.

And for music this morning, here’s Stockholm, Sweden /Brisbane, Australia country duo Texas Tea with their album Röda Tråden (Youtube) (trs: ‘red threads’ according to goggle)
