THE LORIKEETS

It's a raucous riot, in the trees.

 

An onomatopoeic cacophony

A screeching symphony

An otic onslaught that assaults the ears

Yet somehow soothes,

Despite its deafening discordance.

 

I look up

 

Two hundred kaleidoscopic rainbows

flit through branches that are

impossibly green against the infinite blue of a

clear sky that goes on forever

 

The gum trees have flowered

 

The colourful crescendo dances through the leaves,

the strobe-like spectrum changing a hundred times a second,

defying description, screaming

their avian insults at all and sundry,

red, yellow, orange, blue, and every possible combination

invade my brain

daring me to to describe

this polychromatic Picasso from nature's palette.

 

The lorikeets are here.
