in natures quiet or a rainbow
a wooded stream
rose cockatoos fluttering to a white gum in the carpark
sitting out the rain
just standing there and looking
carpark is what americans call a parking lot.
it was late afternoon and surprisingly dark because of the rain but i stood under the tree a while looking at them with the irritation of the occasional car going past and me not being quite out of the way.
i think there was quite a transition in light between when i got out of the car and seeing the flock of galahs swoop and then fly into the tree and i first went over to look and later when it got darker.
