We Are Kakapo

We are kakapo
Just in case you
Did not know.
We live by night
We lack flight
We prefer
The ground
but we do
Climb around.
There are so
Few of us
That remain.
We need your help
So please explain
To all that do not
Understand
That we are part
Of the landscape
And essential
To our land.
Thank you for reading
And learning a bit
About us.
We are humble
Yet mighty
And do not
Want to make a fuss.

hello! I have managed to incorporate my eternal woodstock nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. I am an artist/writer/photographer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. My passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga ... waking up in the morning. I find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. Sketching, watercolor painting, poetry and photography are my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. From living with a chronic illness, I have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance.

WHAT A FASCINATIING BIRD!
The largest of all parrot species, flightless, nocturnal and plant-eating, the kakapo is one of the strangest and most endangered birds in the world – there is some cautiously optimistic success, as you can see in this article:
