Her Gift Remains

 

Today’s first gift
flew close by me a
flutter of wings that
I felt before I saw her,
she came alongside
hopping from shrub to shrub
just ahead of me
watching, trilling,
as if heralding,
and, at last she waited
or so it seemed,
and as I drew level
she looked at me intently
and, as it were,
I’m certain she smiled
cocked her head
as if hello
then took her leave,
yet ever present
her gift remains.

  2. Bird courtship is so interesting with their mating dances, crazy poses, and nest building to other elaborate displays, this behavior can be fascinating to witness.

  16. You’ve described a very special moment….happens not enough. When we stop, still, and suddenly a creature of nature is in front of us and magically they make eye contact and time stands still as somehow we commune with them…some magical moment of connection….and then just as suddenly they are gone and we are left a bit breathless by the encounter. I really enjoyed this post!
