Honey Bird

A purple
Bird
Breaks honeycombs
Petals of flowers
Pink
The top
Of the Dadap
Tree: the bird
Thin-winged
Crook-beaked
Grey black leaves
Tremble
Branches
Give way when
The beak
The wing suddenly
Swerve
Wind on its
Tail. The ends of
Branches
Blue.

(F Rahardi, from Kompas, 7 May 2006, p. 30)
