White eye rituals.

Little white eye
rubs its beak against
the climbing Aloe,
fluffing his
immaculate green plumage,
throwing back his head
in heady belief,
as he repeats his
ritual over and over,
keeping an exited eye
on the domain around him,
then flitting off to the ground
before returning to his
perch and opening a seed pod
eating the seed,
then starting his musical
calls and ritual over;
No mate came by to visit today,
so he will try again tomorrow
until he finds a mate
to take to his newly built nest.
