Portrait of a Sparrow

I can’t draw;

but, I can admit to it.

So, a positive taken from a negative,

and something to build upon.


There are other things that I can’t do;

and, I can admit to them, too.

Which makes me good

at admitting to things

that I have no skill in.


Perhaps I’m better at doing that

than many others –

it could be my forte.


So, what has all this to do with Sparrows?

Nothing at all.

I seem to have a title

that has less than a little

relevance to the text –

or the other way round.


To be honest,

my portrait of a Sparrow

would probably look like

a spider doing a star jump –

but not recognisably so.
