Crimson’s Creative Challenge #217 #Monogamous

A gentle hiss, a sidelong glance

and so begins the courtship dance

each plucking feathers from their breast

which soon she’ll use to line the nest

an art to which they are both used

for each year brings another brood

a lifelong affair of the heart

that only death can split apart
