Strange Land

The James's Flamingo (Phoenicopterus jamesi), also known as the Puna Flamingo, is a South American flamingo, named for Harry Berkeley James. It breeds on the high Andean plateaus of Peru, Chile, Bolivia and Argentina. It is related to the Andean Flamingo, and the two are often placed in the genus Phoenicoparrus. It is a small and delicate flamingo, approximately 3 feet in height. Its plumage is pale pink, with bright carmine streaks around the neck and on the back. When perched a small amount of black can be seen in the wings. There is bright red skin around the eye. The legs are brick-red and the bill is bright yellow with a black tip. Immature birds are greyish. James's Flamingo is similar to other South American flamingoes, but the Chilean Flamingo is pinker, with a longer bill without yellow, and the Andean Flamingo is larger with more black in the wings and bill, and yellow legs.

Being touched upon the sky,
Thunder bursts the waves of sublime,
Leading paths into strange lands,
Of subverted norms and endless wants,
Desires that fills over loading cups,
Of eternity and thud,
Love and thirst,
Of which one springs into the depths,
Raging the endless wars of stagnant chores,
Stop! the world stops with us,
Here we go to the peace , Alas!!
As we sit and ponder,
When all around you are screaming;
About the things they have done
Sitting and chattering,
Clattering
And shattering,
Banging and slanging,
Reeling, walking, sitting and sleeping
Down the alley as they go up the block,
Still chattering and battering as everything
Around me freezes,
And still I sit and slouch on the road of hope
Struggling in the ways of sloppy mane.
