Haldi Pakhi – Turmeric Bird


Bhartiye bird under Indian fig

Looking here and there

Resting or waiting for a meal?

She is yet to reveal

 

Known as “Haldi Pakhi” in Bengal

Bhartiye bird under Indian fig

Body, like someone applied turmeric

Colorization by Nature is mesmeric

 

I saw her under friend’s tree

And bad photographer under me

Bhartiye bird under Indian fig

A small bird not so big

 

A very vibrant creature

Head, like colored from Coal

Lovely looking yellow Oriole

Bhartiye bird under Indian fig

Groundhog


Today while finishing my last left yawn

Saw him chewing green blades of lawn

Ready to run away in bushes near by

There was a human fear in his black eye

But it’s very pleasant to see

Under the shade of summer Maple Tree

Finally you came out for morning jog

Finally I know your name, “groundhog”
