Every weekend I spare some time
to watch the migratory flamingoes
as they visit the waterbody near my home.
They come one by one - or sometimes in flocks.
Over the marsh that provides them with food.
They gather their food from the muddy water
as they stride gracefully along the banks.
Its a majestic site to watch .
And I am sure will gladden everyone.
I always wonder , where they go thereafter
After the evening sets, do they have nests?
Or do with sleep in the open .
They must be wary of predators in the dark.
Watching them gives me the strength to live.
Their life teach me a lesson everyday.
You have to work hard for your daily meal
but still can live free and wild
 if only you have the will
to fly away on your wings.
