My Take – TANKATUESDAY WEEKLY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 238, #SYNONYMSONLY

The synonyms for this challenge are Sanctuary & Follow. I used the word refuge & haven for sanctuary and observe & watch for follow.

This is an Abhanga A form from India. Any number of quatrains.
Syllabic 6/6/6/4 Rhymed: xaax

bird refuge

Where Magic Happens

each morning I retreat
to be free of the walls
and hear the birds calling,
where I can write

a haven to bird watch—
they sing, hidden from view
trees are their refuge, true,
blessed be trees

the heat, today extreme
I sit and melt away
waiting, watching, each day
magic happens
