Perched on a branch is a lovely bird,
Her colours shining in the evening sun
Her song breaking barriers of silence,
Reaching every soul that cares to listen.
An onlooker watches her mesmerized,
Amazed at her beauty and melody
Yearning for more and more of music
Trying desperately for a better view.
Another is standing nearby with arrow
Ready to bring the bird down
The song guides him to the prey
Bright colours of feathers and sun-rays
Isolate the bird from leaves and branches.
The wish of both cannot be granted
Will the bird die or will it survive?
