When the Bluebird Sings

Bluebird via audobon

When the bluebird sings she lifts her voice, as a prayer for us

that we will be encouraged, focusing on the beauty

filling us, seeing the deer

in the wildflowers,

breathing in the coolness

and the strength of the forest,

conquering our own mountains.

And as we smile, the bluebird’s faith

becomes even stronger.

As I Wander

20160709_140150

As I wander through woods it begins to lightly rain,

hood up, shoes crunching twigs, even where winter was singing,

the harshness has ended. And now it is time for

the robin, the blue jay squawking, gawking,

jumping from branch to branch

and a dove

coos

asking for peace.
