Parrots screech their greetings.
Magpies warble in harmonics
Doves coo a minor scale
Honey eaters tweet and twitter
Light shimmering dances
And I?

I snatch the last strands of sleep
And wait to see if I’ll sing
When sleep has slid away
But not yet
Let me truss myself again in sleep

Till light shadowing dances
