Birds Talking – Poem JK.Leahy©
Silent words, only seen
Scratching, screeching and bursting to surface
Extending wings, feathers, beaks and necks
Swooping, flying, walking and talking
Birth by imagination
Birds taking forms
Living on paper
I have submitted this illustration with my entry for the children’s story in the Crocodile Prize, the National PNG Literature Awards.
If you like the title and the picture, be sure to look out for the story on this blog. I would be happy to share the story once the judging is completed.
