Flight

by The Cheesesellers Wife

Oh to slip into the sky, to soar and dance and tumble
Murmurate, swoop and stoop
Twisting twining the wind to my joy

Sing Lilting Praise

Rapturous glimmers of refracting gold

hush chills

by briannadawn

the leaves twist their fingers
telling the wind to hush
as it prattles on, rushing across
the necks of rivers, slithering up
the spines of bridges, biting

Let me sing my natural song

by newrana

cage-1226738_960_720

Lend me thy ears;
have mercy on my tears.
I’m a lonely old bird,
now in a cage,
a beautiful cage, made of pure gold
with so many doors, all but closed.

The poet Rumi advises us to find a place
high in a nearby tree to hide our spirit.
It is so easily bruised and, when damaged,
we cannot hear what it has to teach.
I read this and had a question–
why did I wait so long to do the work

Oh Rain!

by Miriam Hurdle

DSCN0937

Heavy rain pours in the morn of two to four,

Warm air lifting the clouds dropped the temperature.

Drip drop drip drop on the roof,

Sounded like a hypnotizing sooth.

Woke up to fresh misty air,

Hastily made a visit to my garden,

The Roller

by A. Marie

She is color, speed, and song.
Her appearance, an oasis
Of the eye.
A wunderkind, a rapture,
Were she mineral
She be as wulfenite.
A caress of spring flowering and
Young life, beauteous and beguiling.

Birds

by Venkat

Thoughts, they come
In plumes of green and blue
Thoughts, they squeal
In voices shrill, in songs sweet
Thoughts, they touch
Whispers soft, scratches hard
Thoughts, they hold
Moments of wonder, pauses sad

Big Hawk and Little Bird

by russtowne

Big Hawk and Little Bird

I stopped to watch a majestic hawk circle a tree

Which stood fifty feet in front of me

Then something tiny caught my eye

A flash of feathers streaked through the sky.

His wings beat so fast they blurred

As he flew into the larger bird

That was at least four times the size

Of that frantic little guy.

“Come caress

The deepest parts of me.

Flight: Nonet.

by Author

If we could fly away together, you and me,
and take our needed rest at a sailing
ship, & find fish to eat for dinner;
if we could share each other

Soul Music

by harulawordsthatserve

There once was a soul music everyone heard

sung by the rivers, the wind and the birds.

Keeping the beat were the earth and the sun,

warming our hearts with the sound of the drum.

That soul music plays still

within you and me,

but when do we listen?

It’s silent you see.

Trapped

by journeyintopoetry

Trapped

Acceptance just flew away.

Accompanied two magpies as
they took off over gardens,
into distant fields now green again,
able to breath from welcome thaw.

Feather Friend

by Shashi Moore

birds-the-animal-kingdom-250708_1024_768

Spring Choice

A feathered friend of mine

Perched, in search of a place

For the time so near

Her young ones from a shell to appear.

Her mate waits watching her in pain

For the love they share to go in vain.

That tricky bird!

by sustainabilitea

I’ve been thinking about “my” cardinal lately (http://sustainabilitea.wordpress.com/2012/07/14/mockingbird/) as I haven’t seen or heard him.  This cardinal did not want to be photographed, which led to these limericks.  Enjoy!
