Varying Perspectives - a Chastushka styled poem



Today I wanted to share a different form of poetry known as a Chastushka where the end rhymes of the first and third line rhyme with each other and the second and fourth line end rhymes rhyme.  This poem is only four lines in total and usually about a subject in nature.  The final line in a Chastushka is written to make the reader think about the poem overall.

Silently studying birds alighting upon the pavement
my gaze is met by a feathered friend who cocks his head
our eyes lock in an intense gaze, opponents sizing up the competition
the question on my mind is am I observing him, or is he watching me?
 
 
 
Now that's something to ponder next time a bird glances your way!  Hope this Chastushka poem intrigued you somewhat and if you enjoyed it or have comments please rate the post or comment on this piece!  Have a lovely day all!
