Not Haiku or Tanka either but me-self!

me-self is 6-6-6-6-6-6-6 -7 and more

They meet at a dinner table,


All main dishes sumptuous vegetables,


With the exception of micro crustaceans,


Stuck to the soft belly of the plate,


For a starters,


Obligingly the host has to offer.


They freely exchanged greetings,


After initially glowering at each other.


One is bright light feathered,


The other tenebrous heavy weight boxer.


They are the masters of their respective trades.


For success one relies on the air,


The other with all that entails


Is a foot soldier.


The fact these contrasting two


Brought themselves together,


And sat at the same table,


One marvels at the wonder of nature.
