lil bird...

lil bird
tiny one
you sit upon the
garden gate
a lil friend
I find in thee
your gentle song
comforts me
you do not fly
away so fast
your companionship
here to last


Was up most the night, and slept most the day. Been going through many trials within my family lately. I'm remaining quiet at the moment about it. But just want you to know so that you understand my posting or why I'm not posting.

"There are joys which long to be ours. God sends ten thousands truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet; but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away."
~Henry Ward Beecher

"A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song."
~Chinese proverb

Like Coming Back To The Sea...

"But when the earth answered like a sounding-board in a deep fertile roar, and the world sang round you in all dimensions, all above and below, ~that was the rain. It was like coming back to the Sea, when you have been a long time away from it, like a lover's embrace." Isak Dinesen~ Out Of Africa

The wind blows, grey clouds sweep the sky, I can smell...the rain coming.

Taking a bit of a bloggy break, I have things to tend to.
