The Blackbird Under the Jujube – Wordle – November 21, 2015

Jujube Tree after the snowstorm

                             that snowy afternoon

whistling under the jujube tree
moving cautiously
following rhythms of an ancient lay
the blackbird pierced the fog
with its jolly song,
with a pantomime of indifference
there in the whirling snow storm …

elsewhere

barbaric drum beats echoed
inside a smoke-filled tavern
there bawds and bullies laughed and played
in a charade of carefree joy
in rhythmic discordance …
they never heard the blackbird’s song
under the jujube tree.

    • Yes, better outside with nature I think … the blackbirds here are famous for being winter birds … though they actually sing (the male does actually) more in the spring. Jujube trees are so delightful. Thanks for reading Jae Rose.
