In the hedgerows on this peaceful morning,
the green and yellow backdrop is torn by waxwings.
With tricorn head feathers and ‘stand and deliver’ masks,
they flourish their plumage and spread wing tips,
waxy red to seal their Bohemian spring courtship.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Tuesday Platform
Marian is the host for our unprompted free-range day of the week in the Imaginary Garden. Today, she has asked us to share something old, something new, or our April 4 entry for NaPoWriMo. She has also offered an *optional* extra teensy-tiny challenge: to write a 5-line poem containing three colours.
