Birds At Birdfeeder

Birds at Birdfeeder
By Pauline Harris

Bird feeder filled up 
Back inside to watch
Cardinals come quickly
Taking to the ground
At first, then up
One flies to feeder
Protecting his self
While eating away
A female cardinal 
Approaches slowly 
She seems okay
A few doves fly by
Landing just there
Getting some seeds
A few small birds
Cautiously land nearby
Pecked at by some,
But ultimately eating 
All eating, sharing seeds
Politely eating together 
…until a bluejay comes
Commanding the food is his
He eats his fill and off he goes
The other birds return
Safely eating together

Hummingbirds

The Hummingbirds
By Pauline Harris

At this time of year
When the world is
Awakening with flowers 
And greenery all around

Tiny bees and hummingbirds 
Fly about from one flower
Onto the next, a few bits away

Spotting them
Zooming in and out
Oh look over there
One resting on a branch
A couple of breaths
And whoop, there it is
Off and flying once again
Such wonderment 
The tiny hummingbirds 
Take to flight
What a delight

Calling of the Birds

Out in the fields, he stood

Among the grassy meadows near the hills

Moon had just risen above the eclipse

Shadows approach to gain insight

Of the coming year to be

The trumpet is blown

Birds flock to the sound

Dancing in a rhythm

Only the awaken can fathom

With delight, notes echo in the distance

Seeking those who are listening

Carry on to find delight

Carry on to share wisdom

Carry on, carry on, carry on

by Pauline Harris
inspiration: a photo of a man in a field playing the trumpet with birds coming out of it.
