My dear kingfisher

My dear kingfisher 
I meet you every day
and miss you equivalently
thus I or you on our own job.

We find either regularly
or sometime at our intervals
unlike the late morning wishes
we often exchange in silence.

I feel cheerful seeing you
appealing in robin blue
every time u come perch
the glorious gulmohar tree.

Opening the red beak
you sing a vibration song,
a distinct yet unique one
is my favorite mimics tone.

I attend your calls; sometime
dialed from far away bushes,
I feel your presence, whenever
I catch you in my mind voice.

You play a role in my life
that I could cherish anytime
and you’re my beautiful blue bird
I feel close to my heart.

Wonderful ode to a wonderful bird. The way kingfisher dives into the river and catches fish offers an excellent sight. It's good of you to write a poem on birds.

A nice poem overall: I particularly loved the following stanza.

" I attend your calls; sometime
dialed from far away bushes,
I feel your presence, whenever
I catch you in my mind voice."

Wow, I never seen a kingfisher like that. The ones around here near the Texas Gulf can be a little drab in color. Nice photo.
